Paper Abstract

A vehicle real-time attitude estimation systems (VRAES) is described which uses multiple optical sensors to detect and track moving targets. The pointing and shape information from each optical sensor is combined in real-time to estimate the 3-space location and attitude (orientation) of the target. This paper describes the system architecture, the algorithm,a nd the real-time implementation. Test results indicate that the system can operate in real- time, on a wide range of data and provide precise estimates of position and orientation.
