DroneBIT: BITalino-based controller for the AR.Parrot

Postby BITalino » Tue Feb 04, 2014 3:32 pm

DroneBIT is an experimental controller based on the BITalino Freestyle, that uses the BITalino Python API and the python-ardrone library to control the AR.Parrot drone: https://github.com/venthur/python-ardrone

This device integrates EMG and accelerometer sensors, which are used to control the takeoff & landing (EMG), left & right (accelerometer X-axis), and forward & backward (accelerometer Y-axis) commands on the AR.Parrot drone.

The first experiments (alpha version) can be seen at:
