Hi all, here we would like to share a recent progress on our image recognition based copter controller.

The system uses a tablet and a transmitter. The tablet detects the copter's position by recognizing the red circle marker painted on the copter, and try to maintain the copter's position within the center of the tablet's display (Green circled area on…


Using smartphone for the brain of a drone

Posted on February 24, 2015 at 9:01pm 29 Comments

Hi DIY Drones, we are happy to write here about our drone that use smartphone as the brain, and phone's display for its face! We are trying to build an API set that runs on Android, which send commands in MAVLINK over USB serial to Pixhawk.

We were researchers of optimization problems at Stanford univ. and the Univ. of Tokyo, and we study route scheduling and…
