Video-based Positioning Systems

Over the past 10 years, OptoKnowledge has been developing navigation and positioning systems based on the use of video technology. The goal of this work is to provide position information without reliance on GPS, which can be denied due to jamming, urban canyons, and various other reasons. The work covers navigation for unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as positioning systems for dismounted soldiers.

Some of this work is described in the following journal article: Lee, K, Kriesel, J.M., and Gat, N. "Autonomous Airborne Video-Aided Navigation," NAVIGATION: Journal of The Institute of Navigation, Vol. 57, No. 3, Fall 2010.
