Congrats to the PRENAV team, who were one of the winners of the Flying Robot Film Festival with the above video, which shows their precision navigation technology running with Pixhawk. Impressive!
Hats off to the "Chocolate Copter" effort. Felt true to DIY Drones. Fly it then eat it. Awesome.
Now we need a Christmas light version. ;-)
Cool video, and very interesting technology. I know people looking for just such a thing.So it's using Pixhawk hardware, what about firmware, is it Ardupilot or something else?
If you look at 0:20 in the video, my guess would be they use ground based laser tracking to position the copter.
All this is great. But if so, this is yet another case of taking already established existing technology and somehow making it 'patent pending' by adding a multicopter.
+1 John ... really what PRENAV has is a symbiotic system/technology. Not really robotic/autonomous, in my opinion, only slightly more interesting than MoCap. The proprietary claims are interesting as there are non-proprietary technologies in use that display this level of precision with respect to UAVs.
Just as good as a vicon system... outdoors.
What we found: great for a single drone, not so great for fleets of drones.
Chocolate copter: yum...
There are FREE solution (and real source of PRENAV prjct? ) from ETHZhttp://flyingmachinearena.org/
or precursor at least...
