Optic-flow-based Navigation for Ultralight Indoor Aircraft

The goal of this project is to develop an autonomous microflyer capable of navigating within houses or small built environments using vision as main source of information. Flying indoor implies a number of challenges that are not found in outdoor autonomous flight. These include small size and slow speed for maneuverability, light weight to stay airborne, low-consumption electronics, and smart sensing and control to fly in textured environment.
