Image-Based Visual Servo Control of the Translation Kinematics of a Quadrotor Aerial Vehicle
In this paper, we investigate a range of image-based visual servo control algorithms for regulation of the position of a quadrotor aerial vehicle. The most promising control algorithms have beenExpand

A generic fisheye camera model for robotic applications
Omnidirectional cameras have a wide field of view and are thus used in many robotic vision tasks. An omnidirectional view may be acquired by a fisheye camera which provides a full image compared toExpand

Chasing a moving target from a flying UAV
This paper proposes a vision-based algorithm to autonomously track and chase a moving target with a small-size flying UAV. The challenging constraints associated with the UAV flight led us toExpand

Using multiple hypothesis in model-based tracking
Classic registration methods for model-based tracking try to align the projected edges of a 3D model with the edges of the image. However, wrong matches at low level can make these methods fail. ThisExpand
