Flight logs of autonomous GNSS-denied UAV navigation using visual odometry and range distance sensors

Viewed: 11

This dataset consists of flight logs of autonomous navigation of a small quadrotor UAV (Holybro S500) under a GNSS-denied scenario using visual odometry and range distance sensors. Experimentation was conducted using real flight tests. The tested environment is the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Da Vinci Precinct (DVP) hangar area, 24/22 Boronia Rd, Brisbane Airport, QLD 4008, Australia.

The data collection campaign occurred over four (4) opportunities from 25 June, 2020 to 2 July, 2020, between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. The dataset was automatically generated by the flight controller unit (Pixhawk v4) and can be processed using any of the open-source software solutions provided by the PX4 community (https://docs.px4.io/master/en/log/flight_log_analysis.html). 

The data collection formed part of the PhD project "Autonomous Decision Making on UAVs under Environment and Target Detection Uncertainty".
