Abstract

We describe a new approach for stereo-based obstacle avoidance. This method analyzes the images of a stereo camera in realtime and searches for a safe target point that can be reached without collision. The obstacle avoidance system is used by our unmanned helicopter ARTIS (Autonomous Rotorcraft Testbed for Intelligent Systems) and its simulation environment. It is optimized for this UAV, but not limited to aircraft systems.
