18 Medical Imaging
19 Airborne surveillance Cooperation with Czech Airforce R&D unit Unmanned aerial vehicle The aim is the detection of moving vehicles on a ground (speed km/h) Compensation for own UAV motion necessary
20 UAV, tracked vehicles Red and blue blobs point to moving vehicles. Two colors allow to distinguish the movement direction. Video, click on it.
21 Tracking, stabilization Video, click on it.
22 Tracking, stabilization 2 Video, click on it.
23 Stabilized camera head Developed on the Czech Air Force demand of from 2006 to Two CTU teams: Dept. of Cybernetics and Dept. of Control Engineering. Two feedbacks: the fast one dumps vibrations of the UAV, the slow one tracks the target.
24 Stabilized camera head, test Video, click on it.
25 Sputnik tracker Tracking with a companion. Finds the companion automatically. Does not loose tracks when the template is not visible. Video, click on it.
