The SARA project – RPAS solution for SAR, surveillance and sports
A dedicated test has been performed continuously during a football match, being SARA terminal tailored to manage several players, whose positions are identified over time. Footballers are localised exploiting a #GNSS#Galileo Receiver installed on board the drone – acting as reference – as well as a computer vision algorithm transforming pixels in 2D geographical position. A positions’ (one per second) profile reconstruction has been performed and visually compared using the acquired video. This qualitative test indicates interesting results in terms of target identification (right player) and localisation (field zone) also considering the limited cost of used infrastructure.
