Camera mounted on drone, speed?

asked 2020-01-16 11:06:16 -0500


I've nearly no experience with OpenCV, but have toyed around with the Python library a little. Before I dive too deep into a rabbit hole, I thought I'd ask.

I have a front facing RGB camera mounted on a drone. Is it possible to detect my speed using this?

Secondarily, I also have a downward facing optical flow camera. I can't access it directly with v4l, but I might put some effort into working with it. Using optical flow, I know I can detect my speed, but is height somehow considered?

Thanks for this!
