Familiarity for UAVs

In recent years the idea that visual route navigation might be implemented by agents making simple familiarity judgements has become popular. It allows for navigation with a simple unstructured visual memory that could be implemented in the mushroom body of an insect. Given the simplicity of the idea it was inevitable that it would be tested in UAV platforms. This paper reports tentatively successful trials of such an algorithm.
