Abstract

With the aim of inspecting ground pipelines autonomously, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) will be used in this research. Arbitrary object contours in a 2D image could be considered as plane shapes, which will be used to identify their structures. Vision-based tracking is proposed because it is relatively more direct and more accurate than other sensors such as GPS. Image processing is applied to obtain object position information after capturing images by UAV camera, and then the UAV tracks the structure according to these position data autonomously. For such a process, controllers play a key role which can affect response, sensitivity, accuracy and stability of the tracking. In this research, a velocity controller is applied.
