In this paper, autonomous target localization is achieved on quadrotor helicopter, with the use of 2D laser rangefinder and fixed monocular camera. Color-featured target is located in 3D space without prior knowledge of its size or shape. Coordinate systems of camera and laser rangefinder are integrated to establish body-fixed reference coordinate system for both localization and flight control. Rotation compensation algorithm is developed to neutralize the errors introduced by the changes of...[Show more]
