Abstract: Safe navigation and planning capabilities are of great importance to micro aerial vehicle (MAVs) applications in diverse environments. MAVs are allowed to quickly access to the open sky or open area where far away from ground obstacles based on the onboard Global Positioning System (GPS) data. Therefore, the flight path with geological obstacles can be preplanned to optimize the flight performance. Besides for these areas, MAVs become more demanding for missions in complex harsh environment, such as autonomous exploration, inspection and rescue tasks in disaster areas due to their manoeuvrability and low-cost. The traditional GPS is not able to navigate the MAV in these signal inaccessible area. Even human operator may suffer from a significant risk of health.
