Last weekend our team from Robotik AG Ilmenau won the RobotChallenge AirRace in Vienna, sharing the winner's podium with team "Sirin" from russia.

Both teams could complete 24 rounds in 10 minutes!

Our UAV is based on the Exynos 4 Quadrotor using 2 cores for opencv image processing and one for executing the flight code.

After our "safe trial", we increased the flight speed but unfortunately our attempt ended in red smoke (motor controller died).

  • Thanks Tridge and Randy! In the last 6 Months I was completing my Ph.D project, thus there was not much time for PenguPilot (I wasn't very active on github, too). I'll try to spend more time on it in future... :-)

    Yeah, really excellent work!

    very nice to see your posting.

  • Thanks, Chris! I'm currently working on even more modularization,.. I'll post an update if I find the time to complete it.

    Congrats! I love the component/package-based approach on that Linux-based autopilot
