Professor T. John Koo at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN has successfully built a system for autonomous flight using our Draganflyer V Ti RC helicopters. Prof. T. John Koo’s VECPAV Project (Vanderbilt Embedded Computing Platform for Autonomous Vehicles) focuses on developing intelligent control software for unmanned aerial and ground vehicles. Our Draganflyer V Ti RC helicopters were the perfect aerial vehicles for his research.
“The VECPAV system uses a sensor tracker to monitor the motion and position of a Draganflyer rc helicopter by using identifier points on the helicopter. The system then analyzes this data and sends commands back to the Draganflyer rc helicopter through a radio control transmitter, telling the Draganflyer rc helicopter to maintain position or move through its flight plan.”
