F. Stoican, Dan, P., Vlasceanu, E., and Mateescu, C., “Geometrical considerations for photogrammetry missions in an UAV context”, in 19th International Conference on System Theory, Control and Computing, Cheile Gradistei, Romania, 2015.Abstract
This paper discusses a practical implementation for photogrammetry missions in an UAV setting. Further advances, which exploit geometrical properties of the problem are considered. In particular, a bi-level optimization procedure which minimizes the total path-length is discussed. Various constraints and limitations are taken into account.
F. Stoican, Prodan, I., and Dan, P., “Flat trajectory generation for way-points relaxations and obstacle avoidance”, in 23rd Mediterranean Conference on Control and Automation (MED), Torremolinos, Spain, 2015.Abstract
This paper addresses some alternatives to classical trajectory generation for an autonomous vehicle which needs to pass through a priori given way-points. Using differential flatness for trajectory generation and B-splines for the flat output parametrization, the current study concentrates on constraint relaxations and on obstacle avoidance conditions. The results are validated through simulations over standard UAV dynamics.
