LED vs EL Lighting Beacon comparaison

Beacon is interested in landing based on vision in the field of eyes visible. Elisa studies the sensitivity of the LED measurement against Electroluminescent in relation to the airstrip, with the aim of correcting the pose estimation.

For night landing in good weather, considerably simplifying the segmentation of light sources, it presents several laying estimation algorithms based on the lighting of the track by LEDs. The light sources are segmented, their discrete moments are calculated and constitute a measure entering a Kalman filter taking into account GPS measurements. This approach of fusion between vision and GPS is revisited with a simple model of the lighting of the track. Inspection of the lighting of the track by electroluminescent is also studied for comparison. It is based on the mapping of a track lighting model by C18 airstrip marking and is compared with conventional point extraction and tracking approaches.

Lighting area’s comparison

The luminous density concerns the use of luminance values of a heliport and also proposes a calculation function, the total area illuminated compare to the volume of minimum heliport lighting material FAA compliant generated by the FATO. The track is first segmented by the number of beacon and the image is binarized. The sum of the squares of the differences (SSD) is then exhaustively calculated, between lighting equipment and an area of interest of the binarized image, to estimate the airstrip’ discrimination.
Moreover, deformations of the heliport lighting relating to the landing trajectory make it possible to obtain an index of illumination with respect to the pilot. Landing detection and tracking techniques detect and aspect modification of the heliport in real time.
