Paper Abstract

This article presents an approach to the optical flow (OF) usage as a general navigation means providing the information about the linear and angular vehicle's velocities. The term of “OF” came from opto-electronic devices where it corresponds to a video sequence of images related to the camera motion either over static surfaces or set of objects. Even if the positions of these objects are unknown in advance, one can estimate the camera motion provided just by video sequence itself and some metric information, such as distance between the objects or the range to the surface. This approach is applicable to any passive observation system which is able to produce a sequence of images, such as radio locator or sonar. Here the UAV application of the OF is considered since it is historically
