In the last decade, with the advances in autonomous technologies, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been encountered a significant focus on several applications. With the complexity of the tasks performed by the UAVs, this addresses the necessity to obtain information about the surrounding environment. Estimating depth maps from monocular images is considered a key role when working small or micro UAVs, this is due to the Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) constraints on these vehicles. Therefore, this paper proposed a lightweight Semantic Neural Network based on Encoder-Decoder architecture; to obtain a depth map from a monocular camera.

The proposed method has been tested in several scenarios of complex environments, and the obtained results show its robustness and efficiency against different weather and light conditions, illustrating the functionality of the proposed method in real-time applications.
