PhD Thesis: "Control of a quadrotor (X4) using stereo vision"

Advisors: J. Torres & R. Lozano


The problem of estimating position and orientation (pose) of an object in real time constitutes an important issue for vision-based control of robots.

Recently, on-board video cameras have been used as a primary source for estimates the position, orientation and velocity of a quadrotor, these measurements are estimated by a single camera first and improved with vision stereo system.

This work present a vision based controller design and its implementation on a quadrotor
