Tran Xuan Bach Nguyen, Kent Rosser, Javaan Chahl
2021 Journal of Imaging  
Large aircraft with complex navigation systems rely on a variety of sensors including radio frequency aids and high performance inertial systems rendering them somewhat resistant to GPS denial.  ...  Vision-based systems, consisting of one or more cameras, could arguably satisfy both size and weight constraints faced by UAVs.  ...  The odometry of the platform was estimated from the fusion of inertial measurements and jointly minimized the reprojection errors of 3D landmarks and inertial measurement errors.  ...
