Abstract

This paper focuses on autonomous navigation of AR.Drone quadrocopter in outdoor environment. The goal is to follow a specified route and land autonomously on a platform placed at the destination. Firstly, the AR.Drone platform, its development kit and sensor extension with GPS and a magnetic compass are described. Then, the navigation architecture of a control program is presented describing important blocks and its' individual tactics. Localization of the landing platform is based on its color. The video is also used to detect nearby obstacles using optical flow calculation suppressing the quadrocopter movements and to avoid the greater changes in the image. The control program implementation is then tested in real environment and the results are presented.
