[SSRR 2019, to appear]

A novel approach inspired by RAIM to monitor the integrity of visual localization for UAV. The algorithm first detects and rejects potential measurement outliers using a statistical approach, and calculates the protection level of the position estimation.

Towards Robust Autonomous MAV Landing with a Gimbal Camera

Christopher Choi and Steven L. Waslander. 

A more robust autonomous landing system for MAVs using a gimbal camera with complete tracking and landing modules. Results are present for both simulation and real MAVs.
