UAV Touch Down/Take Off Sensor

Precision take-off and landing for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV) is essential for autonomous recharging. The UAV will utilize GPS, UWB and a camera for approaching the recharging pad and precision landing. However, for the last few centimeters the vision based state estimation might bare some risks due to the proximity of the camera to the scene. Therefore, a sensor estimating the distance and lateral displacement of the UAV to the recharging pads hould minimize this risk.
