The Autonomous Quadrocopter is a project to assemble a quadrocopter which will navigate through a confined space, such as a hallway, with no human intervention. The goals of the project are to provide a platform for future aerial projects, successfully navigate the quadrocopter down the hallway and back, an be able to visually identify obstacles and adjust accordingly.
We have chosen a quadrocopter for the basis of the project due to the unique combination of agility and stability at both low and high air speeds. Airplanes and helicopters exhibit agility at high and low air speeds respectively, but a quadrocopter combines these attributes in an inherently stable platform.
This WordPress blog chronicles my portion and contributions to the project as a whole.
