IDEA

Have we thought about obstacle avoiding capabilities for the drone? Since its used indoors too, lets make it wall and obstacle avoiding such that even when we manually direct it towards a wall, it doesnt collide with the wall, rather maintains a safe distance.

Mohammad Ahsan please read through the Project Story and discussions.

Darpan Pudasaini what does it take to do this, what kind of additional work, could you lay out those steps, and what does the rest of the team think about obstacle detection?

Steven Reubenstone Adding theae features should add significant amount of work to the project. But we could use the likes of openPilot as was suggested previously by Anton Volt . It seems to have all the advanced features like wall avoidance and gps guiding with support for any kind of sensors. I havent worked with openPilot but going through the documentation, I was psyched by the features it brings to a drone. And its opensource. So our work will greatly be reduced to implementing an already working code.

The pseudocode is amazing anton, nicely planned. It will work best for obstacle avoidance.
Since we are planning it to be indoors, obstacle avoidance is a must i think. And your plan pans out well for the purpose.
As for the path of the drone, we need to decide if we want it to be fully autonomous and we only would be needing to select a destination with the drone doing the rest , reaching the destination, dropping the package, acknowledging the receipt of the package and returning to its base. Or, will it be a semi-autonomous one with a pilot remotely giving it instructions like drop the package, now fly off to this point, etc. and also piloting the drone.
