Stable Flight and Object Tracking with a Quadricopter Using an Android Device

Bardin, Benjamin Alexander; Brown, William Haldean; Blaer, Paul S.

We discuss a novel system architecture for quadricopter control, the Robocopter platform, in which the quadricopter can behave near-autonomously and processing is handled by an Android device on the quadricopter. The Android device communicates with a laptop, receiving commands from the host and sending imagery and sensor data back. We also discuss the results of a series of tests of our platform on our first hardware iteration, named Jabberwock.
