This work documents our progress on building an unmanned aerial vehicle capable of autonomously mapping urban environments. This includes localization and tracking of the vehicle's pose, fusion of sensor-data from onboard GNSS receivers, IMUs, laserscanners and cameras as well as realtime path-planning and collision-avoidance. Currently, we focus on a… CONTINUE READING
