Fly a mini-drone with your computer!
Hello. Does anyone know how to connect a mini drone mars the pc to program with scratch.thanks
It would be nice to be able to run it all from one self-contained unit. I am not sure if the Intel Edison is powerful enough to handle all the vision processing. A separate wireless card would still be needed since the CX-10 drone doesn't use standard 802.11 wifi, it uses a proprietary chip compatible with the nRF24l01 card I used. The nRF24L01 card can interface with the Intel Edison easily enough though.
Amazing project! What do you think of running the whole thing on an intel edison? They can handle python and USB cameras, as well as arduino code. It also comes with buiilt in wifi so you won't need a wireless card.Would be cool to see the whole thing on a small self contained unit!
This is a really cool project. I'm wondering, could you bypass using the Python script and just send the commands via the Serial Port in the Arduino IDE?
Hi,Pls do pm me my I'd firstname.lastname@example.org
hi ,i am having error running the code,i have attached an image file ,pls guide me on thisthanks
Hi,Can i use sony ps3 eye webcam for motion detecting ?Thanks Anjan
Impressive project. There is a lot to learn here: using OpenCV2 to track the drone with camera input to a PC; communicating with the drone's receiver using a compatible transmitter and understanding the command format; and closed loop control dynamics. Not a simple undertaking. - dick55
RadioShack will usually have an arduino, if not then I would go to Amazon - jdaniel2004
