Biologically Inspired Visual Control of Flying Robots [article]

John Ross Stowers, University Of Canterbury
Insects posses an incredible ability to navigate their environment at high speed, despite having small brains and limited visual acuity.  ...  Through selective pressure they have evolved computationally efficient means for simultaneously performing navigation tasks and instantaneous control responses.  ...  The Pixhawk 1 project represents state of the art for onboard visual processing; it is able to autonomously hover and navigate a predefined map or an unknown environment.  ...
