Recent development showed that Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) are nowadays capable of autonomously take off at one point and land at another using only one single camera as exteroceptive sensor. During the flight and landing phase the MAV and user have, however, little knowledge about the whole terrain and potential obstacles. In this paper we show a new solution for a real-time dense 3D terrain reconstruction. This can be used for efficient unmanned MAV terrain exploration and yields a solid...[Show more]
