Indoor Navigation/tethering for research project- Help Needed.

Started this discussion. Last reply by Marvelmind Robotics Jul 9, 2016. 10 Replies

     I wanted to ask if anyone knows of the best way to either tether a IRIS+ quadcopter so it will hover relatively stationary, or provide a system for indoor navigation for a room. I am currently…Continue

Auto missions not landing, jumping, or progressing on takeoff

I haven't seen anyone with a similar situation so far, but I have an SK-450 with an APM 2.5, and I'm having problems switching from "takeoff" to the rest of a mission and from the last waypoint to…Continue

Arducopter Fly-aways: A PSA

Started this discussion. Last reply by Thomas J Coyle III Dec 27, 2013. 8 Replies

I have seen recently a lot of threads about sudden fly-aways occurring on previously rock solid platforms, and I feel it necessary to share my experience. I have an SK-450 quad with Ardupilot 2.5+…Continue

AltHold Baro problems

So, I have to assume there's some code that takes this into account, but I have a problem with the Barometer. I have an SK450 with an APM 2.5+ with 3.0.1. When I'm in alt hold and the copter is not…Continue

Profile Information

About Me:
I am an 18 year old student studying Computer science and Computer Engineering at Christopher Newport University. I'm picking up the senior capstone project from last year, an Arducopter quadcopter, as well as working with an autonomous plane. I have over 9 years of RC experience, beginning with a 1/5 scale Great Planes Piper Cub balsa kit I started building when I was 9. Since then, I have built 2 more nitro models, a PT40 and a 2M wood powered glider, and my hanger includes 3 micro and ultra-micro planes, as well as an MCX2 and MX400 3D helicopters.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am currently just entering the field of UAV's, head first. I have been around computers all my life, and have a significant amount of programming and micro-controller experience. I currently am doing an unofficial project with Christopher Newport University using Arducopter and Arduplane, and hope to continue to aerial photography, and live video processing to identify objects of interest and investigate them autonomously. The options are limitless, and projects such as 3D mapping rooms using Xbox Kinect are possible.

IRIS+ Optical Flow + LIDAR-Lite Loitering: The chronicle

Posted on August 6, 2015 at 1:30pm 8 Comments

Over the course of this summer, I have been working on a research project at the University of Virginia involving a flying camera platform indoors. Seeing as GPS is not a valid option for indoor loitering, I chose to use a combination of px4flow and LIDAR-Lite sensors to maintain position. Seeing as documented personal experiences are in short supply, I…
