I’m doing my final year in aeronautical engineering
I have a project in mind(for my degree) and it involves controlling an rc with matlab/Simulink and also maybe use image processing(very basic level). The background is, this will be an individual project, I will not be working with a group and hence I have to do all the work. So I want to keep it simple and impressive.
I’m relatively new to the world of rc aircrafts and I’ve ordered my first trainer to start flying J
Things which have been bothering me and I need help on:
What Rc aircraft would be ideal for the job?
Advice on the setup required would help a great deal.
How would I imbed the codes and what platform would I have to use?
For image processing, I want to implement a very basic system just to prove that an advanced version can be done.
Using the Ardupilot line is a big advantage, but I fear that it might seem that I put in less effort since most of the functions are already programmed into it?(Is there any other way I could do this, since it is a project for my degree, I have to do some amount of work)
As I mentioned, I’m very new to this part of the woods, it would be great if you guys could point me towards the right stuff required for this feat. Your comments/advice/thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
