Almost a year ago, I posted here about how VR technology could help control and perform research on UAVs in an indoor environment and at a more affordable cost. Currently, the most advanced indoor UAV research lab in the USA and Switzerland are using camera-based motion capture systems. Unfortunately, those systems cost tens of thousands of dollars, require calibration, and are not very portable. I…See More
