|Abstract:||We present a vision-based positioning system for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), which enables autonomous flight (e.g. waypoint navigation) even when GNSS is unavailable. The system uses a combination of optical flow and map matching, and runs in real-time on a small, low-power computer, which can easily be mounted on-board the UAV. Results from flight experiments show good positioning performance.|
