Automatic aerial retrieval of a mobile robot using optical target tracking and localization
2015 IEEE Aerospace Conference
In this paper we present a system for automatic deployment and retrieval of a mobile ground robot using a helicopter UAV. Our system allows using a mobile outdoor robot in areas that cannot be reached other than from the air and aerial measurements alone are not sufficient. For example a ground robot can perform in situ measurements and even take samples that can later be analyzed when the robot is returned by the aerial system. We use a helicopter UAV with a rotor diameter of 1.8m and adoi:10.1109/aero.2015.7118992 fatcat:hfux3gr6xzgwrawgcgdyr5egf4
