Abstract

Indoor navigation with micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) is of growing importance nowadays. State of the art flight management controllers provide extensive interfaces for control and navigation, but most commonly aim for performing in outdoor navigation scenarios. Indoor navigation with MAVs is challenging, because of spatial constraints and lack of drift-free positioning systems like GPS. Instead, vision and/or inertial-based methods are used to localize the MAV against the environment. For educational purposes and moreover to test and develop such algorithms, since 2015 the so called droneSpace was established at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Vision at Graz University of Technology. It consists of a flight arena which is equipped with a highly accurate motion tracking system and further holds an extensive robotics framework for semi-autonomous MAV navigation. A core component of the …
