Computer Vision for UAS Search and Rescue using Navio2

From Navio2 Project Shares:

This multi-rotor UAS will be used in search and rescue operations using object recognition to find a target and deliver a payload, e.g. to help an injured climber on traditionally inaccessible terrain needing to be dropped fluids, a torch, an insulating blanket and/or a flare to assist their survival and later rescue.

A Mobius camera is connected to the Raspberry Pi with Navio2 attached, running an OpenCV application to detect objects. Their position in the frame is used to generate velocity data that is sent via DroneKit to ArduCopter, which then moves to center the drone above the object.
