The most tiny autopilot in the world was introduced yesterday by the Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands.


Named Lisa/s, she comes in at the scales with just a mere 1.9 grams, the 2*2 cm board has everything that a multirotor needs. Among the sensors are a 3 axle gyroscope, compass, barometer and a gps module. It also includes Superbitrf, which allows it to be in contact with a groundstation and a rc controller at the same time. 

It runs on Paparazzi and will go on sale via 1bitsquared in January 2014.

More info (in dutch) here and a video:

Wow! Autonomous micro drones are a particular interest of mine.

Very cool! Just think of the super tiny tiny applications that this could be used for!!!

Soviet87...I have training in confined space search and rescue, and have an interest in using autonomous vehicles for this type of work (as well as more traditional SAR and disaster survey). I have always thought ground vehicles would be the only option for confined spaces, but aerial may not be too far off with continuing miniaturization.

Very impressive hardware. Here's a sped-up video of Esden laying out the board: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENoEr82wSTE
