This paper proposes a robust framework for vision-based ground target finding and action using the high-level decision-making approach of Observe, Orient, Decide and Act (OODA).  ...  The ability to remotely sense and find a set of targets and descend and hover close to each target for an action is desirable in many applications, including inspection, search and rescue and spot spraying  ...  Conclusions This paper proposed a framework for autonomous, multiple ground target-finding and action using a low-cost, multirotor unmanned aerial system.  ...
