We were at the BNAIC 2015 in Hasselt, Belgium, to demonstrate the very first results of the project. A computational efficient optical flow algorithm was made for velocity estimation, which could run on a 4 gr stereoboard with a STM32F4 microprocessor (168 MHz). With this, attached underneath an ARDrone 2.0 during the demonstration, a MAV can stabilize itself with velocity control.
The demonstration itself went very well and many people showed interest in the project itself. Next year we will demonstrate the same principle, but on a pocket drone with the stereo camera facing forward, doing both velocity control as obstacle avoidance.
Until next year!
