Tiivistelmä

Most of the existing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in different scales, use microcontrollers as their processing engine. In this paper, we provide a wide study on how employing Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) alters the development of such UAV systems. This work is organized based on the application’s criticality. After surveying recent products, we reviewed significant researches concerning the use of FPGAs in high-level control techniques necessary for navigation such as path planning, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), stereo vision, as well as the safety-critical low-level tasks such as system stability, state estimation and interfacing with peripherals. In addition, we study the use of FPGAs in mission-critical tasks, including target tracking, communications, obstacle avoidance, etc. In this paper, we mainly review other research papers and compare them in different terms such as speed and energy consumption.
