Substantial progress h_s" been made recently towards designing, building and test-flying remotely piloted Micro Air Vehicles (MA Vs). We seek to complement this progress in overcoming the aerodynamic obstacles to flight at very small scales with a visionguided flight stability and autonomy system. The developed .system is bezs'ed on a rob_vt horizon detection algorithm which we discuss in greater detail in a companion paper [5]. In this paper, we first motivate the use of computer vision .[or… CONTINUE READING
