This project is solving the ZERO GEE Bee – Your Friendly Neighborhood Drone challenge. Description
_our aim : move something (max. 2 kilos ) from point to another autonomously.
our process: . 1- we divide our main system into 6 subsystems : ( drone design and control , path planning , computer vision , indoor navigation , simulation ( using GAZEBO) 2- the challenges that we face : 1 how to hold the object : we design an arm rotates by servo motor 2_zero gravity : using blowers instead of propellers & using this advantage to move drone with only 3 degrees of freedom in space 3_how to plane its route :(path planning explain@ ) 4_how to make drone defines its environment :(using computer vision explain @) 5_ how to simulate our mission and environment : by using GAZEBO platform (explain@)
3- we use sensors ( IMU (based laser gyroscope ) , infrared/ ultrasonic , camera ) & solar battery & servos & push buttons & blowers & structure ( using 3D printer )
