AR.Drone: Intro • Purpose: • To Determine Flight Capability • Compare with Qball
AR.Drone Versatility • Supports: • Matlab • Python • C • Multiple Open Source Projects • Large Users Group
AR.Drone AutoPylot Project • Website: • http://home.wlu.edu/~levys/software/ardrone_autopylot/ • This project allows auto-pilot the Parrot AR.Drone from source code written in Python, Matlab, or C on a 32-bit or 64-bit Linux Computer.
AR.Drone Object Tracking • Object Tracking script readily available • uses OpenCV calls • Designed by Simon Levy • Washington and Lee University • http://www.youtube.com/user/simondlevy#p/a/u/0/_3697dtyOz4
Conclusion • AR.Drone is versatile enough to be used a research platform • Source Code is open and readily available
Next Steps: • Determine what the objectives are for the AR.Drone • Design a architecture that is modular to process additional imaging data or IMU data. • Implement the Design • Provide quantitative results
