In recent years, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have become increasingly useful in a wide range of applications such as surveying, package delivery, and recreation. An emerging research area is that of autonomous precision landing for package pickup and return to base procedures. The motivation behind this project is to create a modular UAV dock and attachment system that can be attached to a payload or docking location. It should also be possible for this modular design to allow multiple attachment points for cooperative package pickup.
