TULIPP obstacle avoidance based on embedded stereo for UAVs

The performance of the reactive obstacle avoidance was tested on real objects in a hardware in the loop (HIL) setup. In our approach the disparity image is calculated on Xilinx Ultrascale+ FPGA and transformed into U-map and V-map. The images are filtered and waypoints are estimated. The application runs in the DJI Simulator.

Tulipp SGM Stereo demo

The use of Unmanned Vehicles (UVs) in different markets has increased significantly. Currently, most important markets are aerial video/photography, precision farming and surveillance/monitoring. Ongoing technical development, e.g. in size, endurance and usability, enables the use of UVs in even more areas and the Tulipp Platform will provide a good starting point. More here -

TULIPP demo running the HIPPEROS Real-Time Operating System

In this simple demo, the Sundance EMC2-DP (equipped with a Zynq-7030) is connected to a 720p HDMI camera and an HDMI screen. The board is running the HIPPEROS Real-Time Operating System which executes a task cycling between: A simple HDMI pass-through, The CPU implementation of the grayscale filter (~15fps) The FPGA accelerated implementation of the
