Visual servo motion control of a spacecraft around an asteroid using feature points

Abstract

A visual servo motion controller is developed for maneuvering a planetary exploration spacecraft in proximity to an asteroid. The controller utilizes the positions of feature points in images of the asteroid taken by an onboard camera. These feature points are extracted from images using some metric and are directly fed back for the calculation of 6DOF… (More)
