Use your android phone as a quadcopter autopilot!


#1

An awesome project that allows you to use your android phone to control a quadcopter… for more information visit the google code page

The idea came from the fact that smartphones now feature a lot of nice components useful for a drone. For example, the Nexus 4 used in this project has:
-sensors: accelerometer, gyrometer, magnetometer, barometer, GPS.
-wireless communication: Wi-Fi, 3G.
-2 cameras.
-a powerful quad-core processor, with a GPU.

What stage are you exactly in right now? I’m thinking about this kinda solution with arduino uno.

No progress has been made for about a year now, I am not the creator of the project, just shared a link to it. But the google code project page is still a great starting point.
