MIT, Draper Research Team Equips UAV with Vision for GNSS-Denied Navigation

In an effort to offset problems caused by loss of GNSS signals — a potentially dangerous situation for first responders among others — a team from Draper Laboratory and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed advanced vision-aided navigation techniques for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that do not rely on external infrastructure, such as GNSS, detailed maps of the environment or motion capture systems.
