This is an example of a swarm that only uses OpenCV and AprilTags for Navigation. It was very cleverly executed by Zerotech, the makers of the Dobby drone, which uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon Flight Controller.

A little laugh with a joke starring my chickens, Penny and Pepsi :)
Oh yes, even chickens may benefit from Arduino tech.
Next step : make ardurover find the path to the chickens house, then recognize if eggs are layed and pick up them up Can DEVs take care of that in a next release ? :)

Hi guys, in these days I made a successful payload test of my cargo drone (it's just a few seconds but it demonstrates that we can do it). Another news is that I'm working on the cargo box so I changed it with a more resistant one and now I'm working on the navigation system (based on waypoints).
