April News Update
· Computer Vision - SLAM (Simultaneous Location and Mapping) >>> working on integrating Orb SLMA to arducopter. ORB SLAM: computer vision based code to our drone because GPS based navigation and movement is not allowed.
· Hardware - working on manufacturing prop guards and preparing carbon fiber sheets to water jet into body components
· Controls - Tuning on motors from built in PID controller from Arducopter to function on a closed loop control system with automated error correction, and testing autonomous functions - basic takeoff, landing, and movement via GPS, proving drone can operate autonomously
· Computations – Successfully implemented a human model into the competition simulation and continuing development on VR integration
