Welcome to the CanberraUAV Image Processing Tools (cuav) Documentation!¶
The CanberraUAV Image Processing (cuav) tools are designed to quickly and accurately locate objects of interest from a large set of photos. With the addition of flight logs of geo-tagging, it can also give the location of the objects.
It can be run in realtime directly from a camera, or offine from a folder of images.
The tools can be run on both Linux and Windows platforms.
Cuav was created by CanberraUAV as part of the UAV Challenge, in order to find a missing bushwalker from photos taken by a Unmanned Aerial System (UAS, commonly known as a "drone") as it flew over the search area at low altitude.
This software is commonly used by UAS that are seach for unusual objects (such as people or livestock) on the ground.
