Percepto - computer vision for drones

Hi,

 

My name is Raviv Raz and I am a co-founder of a really cool startup called Percepto. I really hope you will like it since it pretty much grew out of reading and following this community.

 

Percepto is an add-on device, some may call a companion computer, that is designed to give almost any UAV computer vision…

God is my Co-Pilot……or is it Drone Deploy?

Recently I was approached about one of my previous blog posts on Vineyard Surveys by a Drone Startup based in San Francisco, Drone Deploy. In my previous blogs I’ve stated the importance of a whole system approach to UAV work with a smooth end-to-end flow. It’s not about the drone, or how sexy it is. It’s using the…

Coaxial without swash plate

I came across this interesting video:

As you can see in the video they have managed to control the coaxial design without using a swash plate and all the complicated mechanisms required for that. It looks like this is an excellent concept for very light weight systems. I do wonder how easy this can be scaled up into a device that can actually carry any…

BreezeUAV : An open-source autopilot for UAV

Hi everyone,

I'm happy to share with you today BreezeUAV.



BreezeUAV is an autopilot running on Arduino Mega 2560 which allow the user to do some automatic missions or to fly in "semi-automatic" mode with a Joystick. In fact, instead of controlling the surface controls of the airplane, the joystick define the euler angles desired. Then the autopilot, using PID controllers, stabilize the UAV.



I first decide to implement the whole system on a Yak…

Aeromapper Talon mapping drone

It's been already a while ago since we started selling one of our newest drones based on the Talon UAV airframe: the Aeromapper Talon.

In this occasion we wanted to use a large foam aircraft, something that was compact and yet large to offer 60 minutes endurance carrying a Sony Nex 5 with wide angle lens (as standard sensor, but more sensors are available). We…

Flying Wing for Search and Rescue

Flying Wing for Search and Rescue

Hey Guys,

I've been working on designing a flying wing UAV since 2 months now. Human search and rescue using an autonomous drone is the prime objective of this project.

First Prototype.

One of the major aim of our project is to show how a visual human detection system that uses images from a normal camera can be implemented in software. The system would fit into the larger context of disaster…
