This paper presents a general approach for terrain following (including obstacle avoidance) of a vertical take-off and landing vehicle (VTOL) using multiple observation points. The VTOL vehicle is assumed to be a rigid body, equipped with a minimum sensor suite (camera, IMU and barometric altimeter), manoeuvering over a textured rough terrain made of a concatenation of planar surfaces. Assuming that the forward velocity is separately regulated to a desired non-zero value, the proposed control...[Show more]
