Binocular Vision System Enables UAB Auto-Refueling

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A binocular vision-based platform has simulated autonomous aerial refueling (AAR) between two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in real time, using a boom approach. The platform may be the first step toward a vision-based sensor and navigation system that could enable in-air refueling of UAVs without pilot assistance. In order to verify that a vision system could be designed for boom approach AAR, researchers at Beihang University built and tested an integrated vision-based platform consisting of a tanker UAV, a receiver UAV and a ground station. The octocoptor serving as the tanker was...Read full article
