Drone following a roomba

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 will just describe my version.The idea can be broken down in different sections, one the vehicle, the communications, the control, computer vision and results…The objective of…See More

Trajectory controller using a companion computer and a naze32

Posted on May 14, 2016 at 3:30pm 6 Comments

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:

  • Motion capture laboratory (optitrack)
  • Normal quadcopter 
  • Companion computer (raspberry pis and…
