FlyAR: Augmented Reality Supported Micro Aerial Vehicle Navigation (with Stefanie Zollmann, Christof Hoppe and Tobias Langlotz)

Micro aerial vehicles equipped with high-resolution cameras can be used to create aerial reconstructions of construction sites and similar areas of interest. While automatic flight path planning and autonomous flying is often used, it cannot fully replace the human in the loop to avoid collisions and obstacles. In this paper, we present Augmented Reality supported navigation and flight planning for micro aerial vehicles by augmenting the user’s view with flight plan information and live feedback for flight supervision.
