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.
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.
