Paper Abstract

We propose an innovative hybrid real-time vision system concept for autonomous landing on planetary bodies. It contains digital and optical processing methods. It includes high speed digital image warping to preprocess a video image for optical correlation, position estimation by synthetic estimation filtering, image stabilization by joint transform optical correlation, and hazard identification from measurements of optical flow by sequential image subtraction.
