Abstract

A five-camera vision system was developed for UAV visual attitude calculation and collision warning. The vision system acquires images by using five miniature cameras, stores, and evaluates the visual data real-time with a multi-core processor system implemented in FPGA. The system was designed to be able to operate on a medium sized UAV platform, which raised numerous strict physical constraints.
