PDF Full Text

Abstract

In this research defines the preliminary design - synthesis of a general visual inspection system of quadrotor type, for remote sensing of landscapes. It was shown that as a flying vehicle, the quadrotor has respectable place among vertical take-off and landing vehicles for this purpose. Was made definition unmanned aerial system configuration according design constraints. After analysis was proposed and described unmanned aerial system, selected for this request. For chosen system was made close-range camera calibration, studied image features such as Harris Corners which can serve as a compact image representation for remote sensing of landscapes.
