ABSTRACT

This paper presents development and implementation of a real-time, vision-based landing system for VTOL UAV. We use vision for precise target detection and recognition. A UAV is equipped with the onboard raspberry pi camera to take images and raspberry pi platform to operate the image processing techniques. Today image processing is used for various applications, in this paper it is used for landing target extraction. And vision system is also used for take-off and landing function in VTOL UAV. Our landing target design is used as the helipad ‘’H’’ shape. Firstly, the image is captured to detect the target by the onboard camera. Next, the capture image is operated in the onboard processor. Finally, the alert sound signal is sent to the remote control (RC) for landing VTOL UAV. The information obtained from vision system is used to navigate a safe landing. The experimental results from real tests are presented.
