I want to share my experience with 3d modelling an archaeological structure called "Midas Monument" located at Yazılıkaya, Turkey. It was relatively an easy task, if you have right hardware and software. And I want to thank to dronmarket.com for…
Having received many positive emails about my Extended Kalman Filter Tutorial, I wanted to see whether I could write my own general-purpose EKF from scratch, suitable for running on a microcontroller like Arduino, Teensy, and the STM32 platform…Continue

I want to share with you the tremendous fun I'm having with the BBBmini DIY ArduPilot project, which I discovered during the summer. Hopefully, I can demonstrate what a sexy DIY Linux Autopilot for around 100 bucks looks like and convince you why Linux autopilots are cooler than a cat…Continue

I've been experimenting with putting 360 degree vision, including stereo vision, onto a Crazyflie nano quadrotor to assist with flight in near-Earth and indoor environments. Four stereo boards, each holding two image sensor chips and lenses, together see in all directions except up and down. We developed the image sensor chips…Continue

If you want to make a submersible robot (or, really, any robot) you can either design it for a specific mission, or you can try to make it general purpose. The researchers at the Cura Oceanus Foundation opted for the latter approach with…Continue
The Precision Hawk LATAS technology, which works with Pixhawk and APM-based drones to create static and dynamic geofences to respond to "airspace intrusions" around drones, will be field tested with the FAA this week. From …Continue

Very interesting research that shows that the statistical errors build up with GPS in a way that exaggerates distance traveled. Counterintuitive!
Have you had…
The future is here after over two years of work can be said to have developed in the laboratories of Laser Navigation and thanks to the support of the network of laboratories Virtualrobotix drone technology of tomorrow.
A short video of a recent test test of our system of autonomous flight, mapping and advanced management of the payload.
In the video you…
