Summary: Increasing demands for modern robot vision systems functioning in an increasingly complex, uncertain and changing conditions of observation, makes research on the development of improved and synthesized vision systems, which include sensors of various physical nature, are extremely promising. They provide a significant increase in efficiency in human-machine and automatic control systems of aircraft and spacecraft, ground, surface and underwater robots. The study focused on developing a obstacle detection system for multirotor. Existing solutions which are used on land-based machines, in conditions of using on unmanned aerial vehicles have a number of disadvantages associated with the weight, size and power conditions. The article describes the requirements for the obstacle detection system, its structure in terms of required hardware. Moreover rationale for the selection of necessary measuring devices is given. Also presents a general algorithm of the system.
