Indoor UAV Navigation System Using LED Panels and QR Codes
unmanned aerial vehicle
indoor non-GPS environment
In this study, we propose an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) navigation system using LED panels and QR codes as markers in an indoor environment. An LED panel can display various patterns; hence, we use it as a command presentation device for UAVs, and a QR code can embed various pieces of information, which is used as a sign to estimate the location of the UAV on the way of the flight path. In this paper, we present a navigation method from departure to destination positions in which an obstacle lies between them. In addition, we investigate the effectiveness of our proposed method using an actual UAV.
