"Awesome, your vids always make me kind of jealous but love them. It should be able to do obstacle avoidance with Dronet, especially given that Dronet was trained on driving data."

Adaptation of a ArduPilot Rover to an autonomous DonkeyCar

This video illustrates the adaptation of a ArduPilot Rover to the Artificial Intelligence DonkeyCar environment. This includes the adding-editing of 5 files of the DonkeyCar library. A linear AI model trained by behavioral cloning resulted in a satisfactory autonomous test drive.See More

"Thx Rana. There is a short wiki (on my git page, tab wiki) describing my project. I included a link to this wiki in the README.md file."

"Great efforts n great results indeed ! There is no wiki on the git page which you should do asap, it should include wiring diagram, BOM and more which you think, is required for anyone interested to test it."

improved inference speed on rpi3 using Intel's NCS1

By using Intels OpenVINO and neural computing stick (NCS1) the inference speed of my neural network is increased from 5 frames per second (fps) to 20 using a RPI3. This enabled a far better obstacle avoidance performance of my drone. More info at https://github.com/avncalst/drone_cnn.See More

VTOL testflight

Simple testflight of my E-Flite Convergence equipped with a pixracer flight controller complemented with a "sbus to pwm" home-made circuit to extend the number of servo outputs. Flight stack: Ardupilot Quadplane; Flight mode: loiter.See More

Profile Information

About Me:
Retired prof. in (micro)electronics
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Like building, designing electronic sensor modules. Today's project is designing and building a quadcopter.
Hometown:
Gent, Belgium

1st quadcopter

I bought an Frsky DF 2.4Ghz Combo Pack and dismantled the transmitter package and built my own transmitter as shown.

Apart from the DFT 8-channel  transmitter,  the RC Tx/Rx unit has an own built board with 2 psoc1 mcu’s from Cypress for generating the ppm signal, reading the sticks position and  BT pc communication.

Milling of pcb

A python program controls the settings of the RC Tx/Rx unit and displays the telemetry data

The different parts of the quadcopter are milled in plastic and aluminum. The flightcontroller is the wellknown KK2.0.

Testflights were successful and I gained a lot of experience from this 1st quadcopter.

By changing the CNN of my previous post CNN (1) into a multi-classification CNN (fly, go left, go right, stop) and adding an appropriate multi-thread python dronekit script, my drone…
