Let's say I have a drone that has to fly (and scan) over some area (blue on the images - in this case a PV power plant, but it could be anything) in an autonomous way like in the pic below: enter image description here

Let's also assume that I had already trained an object detection algorithm that masks the area to be scanned and the drone can already fly along it like in the picture below:

enter image description here

But when the drone finishes one stripe of area and is suppose to move to the next one, it has to make a decision which one to go to next, like below:

enter image description here

And I am wondering is there any algorithm or some methodology that could make possible for the drone's algorithm to remember that it already was in a given area, purely based on computer vision and not instruments such as GPS?
