PX4Flow Optical sensor

Inorder to stabilize the quadcopter and boost its stability, adding an optical sensor gives an extra incentive to the quadcopter. Currently, to compute the planar motion of a quadrocopter, users are restricted to ADNS family optical flow sensors which are generally used in mouse sensors. With this module in OpenCV, users will be able to use any generic camera module to compute the coarse motion vectors and in turn compute the 2D velocity for the quadrocopter with much greater accuracy and efficiency. Once the planar velocities are computed, we can use it for stabilizing the quadrocopter while hovering.
