Available UAV sensing solutions for position and range measurements as well as for collision avoidance is still far from perfect: GPSs and barometers aren’t foolproof—even outdoors—and can’t be relied upon when navigating indoors. Ultrasonic altimeters have a very limited range. Optical flow sensors require good lighting and textured surfaces, and camera vision is still a work in progress and tends to be processing intensive.
