PYNQ-copter’s Maiden voyage

Category:REU at UCSDTag: , , , :

This hexrotor was designed using the Xilinx PYNQ board. The system currently has an open-loop controller, but the other members of my group are working toward integrating an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and barometer for a closed-loop controller. What sets this apart from other small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is that all computation is handled within […]
