Project Description


The Parrot [url removed, login to view] is a quadricopter that has 2 cameras and can be controlled over Wi-Fi with an iPhone ([url removed, login to view] ). Video from either of the cameras is streamed live to the iPhone. Flight control settings can be configured from the iPhone. [url removed, login to view] ([url removed, login to view] ) is the reference application to control the AR.Drone. It can be freely downloaded and installed from the Appstore.

Parrot released an SDK and a Developer Guide ([url removed, login to view] ) that help developers with C source code examples so they can easily develop applications to control the [url removed, login to view] from any Wi-Fi device supporting ad-hoc connection mode.

The source code of ardrone_navigation Linux application is provided in the SDK. It provides developers with the basis application source code and should be re-used for the project along with specified open source libraries (gtk, jstest).

The project objective is to develop 2 new functionalities in ardrone_navigation application for controlling the [url removed, login to view] with any USB input device and configuring the flight control settings. The target platform is the Ubuntu distribution of Linux.
