Abstract

In recent years, the capabilities of UAV systems have continued to improve, and they have emerged in military and civilian fields such as urban counter-terrorism reconnaissance, disaster monitoring, logistics distribution, and traffic diversion, and their application prospects are particularly broad. UAV positioning is a necessary link for UAVs to perform tasks and an important manifestation of UAV’s autonomous capabilities. How to meet the positioning requirements of UAVs in environments with weak or no GPS signals such as urban buildings/forests/indoors has become a research hotspot in the UAV field. This paper introduces several UAV positioning methods that can work in GPS denial environment, analyzes their advantages and disadvantages, the current challenges in UAV positioning and finally looks forward to the future development.
