Beyond optical flow — Biomimetic UAV altitude control using horizontal edge information


Biologically inspired unpiloted aerial vehicle (UAV) flight control typically uses regulation of optical flow magnitude or distribution. These designs were motivated by research undertaken on insects that showed they too used optical flow in their flight. Recent research has suggested that optical flow alone can not sufficiently explain the altitude control… (More)
