Paper Abstract

In this paper an efficient image matching algorithm is presented for use in aircraft navigation. A sequence images with each two successive images partially overlapped is sensed by a monocular optical system. 3D undulation features are recovered from the image pairs, and then matched against a reference undulation feature map. Finally, the aircraft position is estimated by minimizing Hausdorff distance measure. The simulation experiment using real terrain data is reported.
