Project: Autonomous Aerial Localization of Ground Vehicles for Assisted Navigation

Team Abstract: The UAS has a secondary sensor for radio frequency (RF) detection using Bluetooth direction finding with beacons on the RGVs to geo-localize the RGVS to within sub-meter accuracy. The RGVs will be tracked using pointing vectors from the Bluetooth-sourced angles allowing for simultaneous tracking of RGVs throughout the mission area.
