  • Patent number: 10254767
    Abstract: A system may include first and second sensors configured to be coupled to a vehicle and generate surface sensor signals representative of a surface on which a location marker is disposed, and generate marker sensor signals representative of the location marker. The system may also include a sensor processor configured to estimate at least one of a position or an orientation of the first sensor relative to the surface on which the location marker is disposed based at least in part on the surface sensor signals, and estimate at least one of a position or an orientation of the second sensor relative to the location marker based at least in part on the marker sensor signals. The sensor processor may be configured to calculate at least one of the position or the orientation of the vehicle relative to the location marker based at least in part on the estimations.

  • Patent number: 10212346
    Abstract: An aerial vehicle may include a first sensor, such as a digital camera, having a lens or other component that includes a second sensor mounted thereto. Information or data, such as digital images, captured using the second sensor may be used to determine or predict motion of the lens, which may include components of translational and/or rotational motion. Once the motion of the lens has been determined or predicted, such motion may be used to stabilize information or data, such as digital images, captured using the first sensor, according to optical or digital stabilization techniques. Where operations of the first sensor and the second sensor are synchronized, motion of the second sensor may be modeled based on information or data captured thereby, and imputed to the first sensor.

  • Patent number: 7636452
    Abstract: A system for automatically acquiring a target with a narrow field-of-view gimbaled imaging sensor. The system includes a target-detection subsystem including one or more target-detection imaging sensor with a first field-of-view, a target-tracking subsystem and a processing system in communication with the target-detection subsystem and the target-tracking imaging subsystem. The target-tracking subsystem includes a target-tracking imaging sensor with a second field-of-view smaller than the first field-of-view, and a gimbal mechanism for controlling a viewing direction of the target-tracking imaging sensor.
