Quadrotor UAV Interface and Localization DesignPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Our project's task was to assist Lincoln Laboratory in preparation for the future automation of a quadrotor UAV system. We created an interface between the quadrotor and ROS to allow for computerized-control of the UAV. Tests of our system indicated that our solution could be feasible with further research. In the next phase of the projects, we created a localization system automate take-off and landing in future mission environments by altering the augmented reality library, ARToolKit, to work with ROS. We performed accuracy, range, update rate, lighting, and tag occlusion tests on our modified code to determine its viability in real-world conditions. We concluded that our current system would not be a feasible due to inconsistencies in tag-detection, but that it merits further research.
