Vision based quadrotor navigation around objects

This project focuses on the railway inspection scenario where the drone is meant to find and inspect certain target objects. Working with an AR.Drone quadrotor, we intend to have basic GPS waypoint navigation to approach the target object, target object detection and basic control architecture for navigating around the detected target.

The project requires familiarization with the ROS environment and high-level controlling of the AR.Drone quadrotor, vision techniques for object detection (including feature detection and machine learning methods) and passion to play with drones.
