Abstract

In this work the following has been done: ROS configuring, installing of catkin, exploring of Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 application programming interface (API), quadrocopter and computer data exchange through Wi-Fi. Result of work is a project with implemented different object tracking methods: Histogram Back Projection and Template Matching. Mouse listener function to capture the object for tracking has been implemented. Implemented mapping of unknown terrain through monocular vision of quadrocopter (PTAM). Methods of quadrocopter control for moving through optimal path considering vector of tracking object movement has been developed based on implemented video stream object tracking methods.
