"@Krysztof It doesn't even have to be that high-res. You could couple a panoramic mirror with a decent processor to do object & position recognition and measure optical flow. Most of the technology is probably available today -- the hard…"
"Hey, if you want to build on PX4 that's great. Go ahead and do it - no one is stopping you. If the community believes in what you're doing, they'll contribute to it as well.
I don't think complaining and making sarcastic…"
I know you love to post this sort of stuff all over the forum, but the community is much bigger than 3DR. The source code is out there. If 3DR takes it in a direction the community doesn't like (or you don't like), it can be forked.…"
"Greg, yes looks pretty interesting. Hydrogen might another area to potentially explore when we're looking at far-off stuff.
I was interested in the more immediate prospect of switching to lithium ion :)"
"Looks like some pretty advanced research you did into this. Seem might seem like a pretty basic question, but why not invest in a good vibration-absorbing or stabilized mount for the camera and dampen vibration there rather than in each motor? It…"
"Hi Guang Yao,
I take it you worked on this project - congrats. Great to see all the stuff that's coming out of Singapore. As I understand, there is some IR obstacle avoidance implemented on the ArduRover. Is your implementation…"
I'm experiencing exactly the same problem using the latest firmware and sonar. Loiter works nicely but the quad slowly descends on altitude hold. The logs seem to indicate it knows it's descending. It's been a very puzzling…"
We're looking at using doing sonar-based obstacle avoidance using 5-6 Maxbotix range finders and writing some code for it. Would you mind sharing? It would be great if we didn't have to write it from scratch."
"I think it's pretty telling that the only feature they actually demo in the video is that it can take off.
Vocal recognition doesn't strike me as the most difficult part as much as the image processing required to follow a person. Again,…"
