Abstract

This paper describes the development of a surveillance system in the laboratory for small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). This system is an important equipment of a mission-oriented UAV. For making a good performance on search, this can track images and take 3-D measurement of a target as well as acquire high quality images. Image tracking is carried out by the Kalman Filter. The position of the target in an image and the relationship among the coordinate systems of the UAV and the Camera and reference are used to solve the 3-D position of the target in real coordinates. This paper presents the hardware system as well as algorithm for the EOS, and then verifies the performance of the image tracking and real-time 3-D measurement of a target’s position. Especially, to reduce the 3-D measurement error of the target, Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) is applied to the measurement system. The performances for their algorithms are presented in the figures in this paper.
