Title:
Vision-Controlled Micro Flying Robots: From System Design to Autonomous Navigation and Mapping in GPS-Denied Environments 
Abstract:
Autonomous microhelicopters will soon play a major role in tasks like search and rescue, environment monitoring, security surveillance, and inspection. If they are further realized in small scale, they can also be used in narrow outdoor and indoor environments and represent only a limited risk for people. However, for such operations, navigating based only on global positioning system ({GPS}) information is not sufficient. Fully autonomous operation in cities or other dense environments requires...    »
