  • @Hugues, I don't know of one yet, but if the control systems are there already, its just a matter of time waiting for the hardware to catch up. Perhaps the new Qualcomm vision system boards could be put to the test when released?

  • MR60

    3D spatial localization to do this requires centimeters or even millimetric precision. That is possible in such a lab environment with the camera based motion system. I do not know yet of a technology that would allow this to work outdoors ?

  • Very cool.  

    I can't wait until this sort of thing is possible outdoors.

  • it's described in the linked article. They use a camera based motion capture system.

    "The project was developed at the Flying Machine Arena [4], a research and demonstration platform for aerial robotics. The arena is equipped with a motion capture system that provides vehicle position and attitude measurements for the small custom quadrocopters. An offboard computer runs the algorithms and sends commands out to the flying machines via a customized wireless infrastructure."

    It is a totally amazing achievement!

  • Wow! This is amazing, great work. Is there collision avoidance in use here or is it all meticulously designed flight paths? Can't wait to read more.

  • Wonderful application!!
