Abstract
Freestyle Technology, Inc. proses to design an build a six-camera video imaging device for use in navigation research. The individual cameras will be attached to two-meter tethers to allow for flexible placement on a variety of platforms. All cameraswill be genlocked to a common signal to assure that corresponding pixels in each camera are sampled at the same time. A user interface will be provided to allow the user to set individual camera parameters and to sample individual frames or sequences offrames from the camera system. Optical flow algorithms will be developed and embdedded in the user interface to allow for the estimate of motion parameters of interest for navigation purposes. A multiple-view genlock camera (MCGV) system will be of valuefor all types of robotic air and land vehicles. It is anticipated that a navigator based on the MVGC will be of lower cost than a MEMS-based IMU and have a lower drift rate.
