\chapter{Introduction}\label{chap:introduction}
Consider a honeybee, fly, or small insect in flight. Even in cluttered environments and at
full speed, the insect's flight behaviour is impressive. The distance between insect eyes is
small and so they cannot rely on stereoscopic vision to assess the distances to
surrounding objects. Therefore, they have developed specific visual
processes to navigate their environment. These processes are
responsible for controlling orientation and movement and extracting information about the
\gls{3D} structure of the environment. These tasks all happen in real-time and exist in
essentially all \gls{diurnal} organisms.
Now consider a similar task performed artificially; the task of controlling a flying robot
by visual means; computer vision. In order to do this one must know, just as biological
organisms, much about oneself and about the surrounding environment\footnote{
\jquote{If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the
universe.} --- Dr.\ Carl Sagan, Cosmos, 1980
}. One begins with a flying robot and an attached camera (or cameras), but much work
remains to be done before a computer vision system for robot control can be
implemented.
The field of biomimetics is the implementation and testing, in a variety of platforms and
environments, of the principles of information processing identified in biological
systems\jcite{dijkstra76}. In the context of flying robotics, this aspiration
has had some success. For a good review, \citet{dijkstra68} describe a number of
biomimetic controllers using visual information.

\end{figure}
\Cref{chap:control-using-edges} describes biologically inspired methods that
control quadrotor altitude and heading using edges and lines in the environment, and
not optical flow as conventionally done. \Cref{sec:edge-stat-model} introduces a
statistical model describing the distribution of edges in a scene.
\Cref{sec:foo} concludes with a summary of the applicability of these
results and a discussion of areas of biologically inspired control that need further
study.

Although the role of the haltere in stabilising gaze may be
important, a more essential and immediate role of the haltere
is to provide rapid feedback to wing-steering muscles to
stabilize aerodynamic force moments.
