A comparison of Pose Estimation algorithms for Machine Vision based Aerial Refueling for UAVs


This paper focuses on the analysis of the performance of specific 'detection and labeling' and 'pose estimation' algorithms within a machine vision (MV)-based approach for the problem of autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) of UAVs. A robust 'detection and labeling algorithm' for the correct identification and sorting of the optical markers is proposed; a… (More)
