We were asked to do some field testing for the Investec Rhino Life Line with Dr Will Faulds. Thought I'd share some of the footage. Only in Africa! :)
Using APM2.6, Tarot T810, Alexmos BGC (soon to be upgrade to 3 axis) and the trusty GoPro.
Here is a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnAL1ygwNg8) of a new implementation of an AHRS algorithm, thanks to Seb Madgwick and Fabio Vareseno works.

For my master thesis I have built a quadcopter based on the Aeroquad platform for doing visual guided autonomous landing. All high processing is done on-board, using a BeagleBoard-XM for high level and Arduino for low level computations. OpenCV is used for recognizing of the marker and Kalman filter is used for robust tracking of the maker position input. The Kalman filter does…Continue
I am writing this morning about a different topic than my build because I am mad at the post office. My RVJET should have arrived two days ago and I am still without a plane. It is in the teens outside today so I thought it would be a perfect assembly day. Instead, I am…Continue
