This is my first post so please be kind ;)
I am currently building a Cloud Control Station (SaaS) for my quadcopter which I hope others will find interesting. After testing some existing GCS I find them very... complex and not so user friendly for purposes Im looking for.
Some design goals for this project are
- Simplicity (Click-n-Fly)
- Manage multiple Drones/UAVs
- Real-time Video
- Search and Rescue
I have made 2-3 PoC versions so far since November last year and I think I finally landed with a design that I think will work. This is what Im working towards right now. (Not a final design)
This is the "napkin" solution I came up with.
This is the latest woking PoC (not the latest design)
First version running DroneKit
Im aiming of having a closed beta in end of May beginning of June so let me know if you are interested in testing it out. Requirement right now is a Raspberry Pi running an ArduPilot compatible APM.
My own current setup is a Quad with Raspberry Pi 3 with a Navio2 as APM with a connected C920 webcam streaming with GStreamer.
Let me know what you think.
