Abstract:

A control algorithm for the automatic steering of an imaging sensor has been developed at DRES. Both the tracking of a fixed ground point and the stabilization of the sensor are addressed. This system has been implemented in large part with pre-existing hardware and software in our UAV system. This report describes the theoretical basis of the system as well as detailing the issues concerning the development of a working prototype. Keywords Unmanned air vehicles, Stabilization, Algorithm, Tracking RPV.
