Paper Abstract

The idea of an autonomic drone landing system based on markers recognition and LEDs (Light-emitting diode) detection is presented in this paper. A safe landing process is one of the most important parts connected with drone mission. The proposed method consists of two main parts: marker recognition and LEDs detection. The issue of marker recognition was widely described in our previous research, in this paper, however, we present the idea of detecting LEDs placed near the marker to improve the detection process. The main problem connected with this issue is creation of the best possible LEDs detection algorithm which would make the detection process accurate and robust. Four different algorithms, that were created by the authors are presented and compared in order to select the best one. We also present the idea of the whole landing system based on both markers recognition and LEDs detection algorithms connected in the way that they make reliable and accurate solution.
