Paper Abstract

Navigation without GPS and other knowledge of environment have been studied for many decades. Advance technology have made sensors more compact and subtle that can be easily integrated into micro and hand-hold device. Recently researchers found that bee and fruit fly have an effectively and efficiently navigation mechanism through optical flow information and process only with their miniature brain. We present a navigation system inspired by the study of insects through a calibrated camera and other inertial sensors. The system utilizes SLAM theory and can be worked in many GPS denied environment. Simulation and experimental results are presented for validation and quantification.
