Product Specification and Design
3rd Year project brief overview
This project aims to develop a quadcopter able to autonomously fly while avoiding fixed and moving obstacles using ultrasonic and infrared proximity sensors. A quadcopter is an unmanned flying vehicle with four motors in a cross arrangement. It is expected that the corresponding controller unit, integrating motor control, based on an Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU), as well as the sensor modules, will be developed using the Atmega-based Arduino platform.
