Hello Sir Martin, I am actually interested in your project, the voice controlled uav.. I am actually developing the same project for my masters degree here in the Philippines with an additional features such as capturing images and do image recognition . Can I request for a manuals /guidelines or step on how did you implement the project? It would be a great help to me for my thesis implementation.
Sir, your reply will be greatly appreciated. You can contact me thru the following emails:
