Q-Drone is a research-oriented unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), which provides objective path planning to meet the requirements of critical infrastructure mapping such as the complete and homogeneous quality of structure-from-motion results and object waypoint generation for securing a novel view of anomalies. Q-Drone will provide a novel data-driven capability to use ultra-wideband sensors in cooperation with visual sensors (IR and RGB camera) with augmented positioning using deep convolutional neural networks. We provide a unique benchmark for the research communities, called “Q-Drone UWB benchmark”.
