A practical Visual Servo Control for a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Guenard, Nicolas; Hamel, Tarek; Mahony, Robert


An image-based visual servo control is presented for an Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) capable of stationary or quasi-stationary flight. The proposed control design addresses visual servo of 'eye-in-hand' type systems. The control of the position and orientation dynamics are decoupled using a visual error based on a spherical centroid data, along with estimation of the gravitational inertial direction. The error used compensates for the poor conditioning of the Jacobian matrix seen in earlier...[Show more]
