Formatted Abstract/Summary In this chapter, we will explore how stereo vision may be applied to facilitate the guidance of an autonomous aircraft. In particular, we will discuss a wide-angle stereo vision system that has been tailored for the specific needs of aircraft guidance, such as terrain following, obstacle avoidance, and landing. Finally, results from closed-loop flight tests conducted using this system will be presented to demonstrate how stereo vision can be successfully utilised to provide guidance for an autonomous aircraft performing real-world tasks.
