Real Flight Demonstration of Monocular Image-Based Aircraft Sense and Avoid

    The Institute for Computer Science and Control (SZTAKI) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA) continues active research in the field of aircraft sense and avoid since six years. The sense (see) and avoid capability is a crucial ability in integrating unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into the national airspace. SZTAKI focuses on the development of a monocular camera based on-board system, which processes image data in real-time and initiates collision avoidance if required. Capabilities of the system are continuously tested in real flight applying small UAVs testbeds.
