Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I write a blog post here!
In this post I will explain about a very cool robotics project I did last year. This project is as cool as it sounds: making a drone follow a roomba using computer vision!
This has been done before and for sure someone has posted their on solution here, I…Continue
This post is to share a bit of the final experimental work of my PhD, since my doctoral defense is next week...
Multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (MRUAV) have become an increasingly interesting area of study in the past decade, becoming tools that allow for positive changes in today’s world. Not having an on-board…Continue
I want to show the progression I have done with my DronePilot framework, and in this video I'm showing how to do a trajectory controller.
I want to start by saying what I'm using to make this work:
We all love drones, and we love to just buy one and go outside and make it fly by itself, this is great. But what is actually going on inside the drone?
In this post I'm going to explain a bit how a loiter controller works, with the difference is that I'll show my controller, share the python code and that I'm using a motion capture…Continue
As a by-product of a research I’m working on right now, I’m showing this videos of me controlling a multirotor from a computer. Its done in different multirotor platforms, two flight controllers, Pixhawk and MultiWii.
So, the basic idea is to send data to the companion computer and then the companion computer will use it to several purposes.…Continue

I would like to share this design made by a group of undergraduate students in the course called "Aerospace Systems Design Project".

This is about some experiments I’m doing using python and openCV and of course one of my drones… In this case the drone used for taking the videos, was my hexacopter (Alduxhexa).
The point is to explore different techniques and algorithms to track colours, objects and the…Continue
This educative video shows how a quadcopter is born, and of course its maiden flight.
I had to built a quad with some parts we order from hobbyking, so, I took my camera, put it in a tripod, read some…Continue

This large video is about the project that Murray and me have being doing in the MAST Lab. It's about doing automatic position control and trajectory tracking of a micro unmanned aerial vehicle, being more specific is our 3D printed quadrotor platform,…Continue
This is yet another version of a 3D printed quadrotor, pointed to be one of the workhorses of my research... The main characteristic of this frame is that instead of using nut and bolts to join the arms and the base together, like in TEGO v2, I'm…Continue
