STORY

Project Overview

Using Pixhawk flight controller and companion computer to develop fully autonomous vision based obstacle avoiding drone.

Current Task in Progress

I intend to use pixhawk flight controller (PX4) and Odroid as companion computer to design and deploy fully autonomous drone. An image processing application running inside Odroid will detect obstacles and send commands to pixhawk flight controller to maneuver the drone

Project Steps

  • Launch Project on Collaborizm
  • Lay out my Project overview
  • Find team
  • Determine how to use the flight controller properly
  • Determine the necessary parts
  • Determine the step by step assembly of this drone
  • Determine what custom software and research will be needed
  • Delegate tasks to teammates

Where I Need the Most Help

  1. FlytOS API to write custom code
  2. openCV for image processing
  3. Coding jedis

Everything contained in this Project.

Why I’m Passionate About This Project

I love #drones
