Painting with drones — The purpose of this project was to come up with an interactive demonstration for the Pygmalion Festival 2016 at UIUC. The end result was a demo where an Android device was given to the visitors, each visitor could then draw any continuous path on the Android device. The x,y-coordinates would then be uploaded to the cloud and a trajectory based on Bézier curves would be generated using a Python script. Finally ROS was used to control a small drone. Camera software was then used to highlight the brightest light in the scene, in this case a LED on the drone.... Read more—

Development of an Autopilot for a Small Fixed-Wing Unmanned Aircraft — The goal of this project was to develop the navigation and guidance system for an autopilot for a small fixed-wing unmanned aircraft. The navigation system, which is implemented as a Kalman filter, used the attitude and sensor measurements from accelerometer, GPS, airspeed sensor and barometer to estimate the position and velocity of the aircraft along with the wind speed. The guidance system was implemented as a Dubins path and vector fields which takes a set of waypoints and an estimate of the position and outputs set-points for the low level controllers on the airplane in order to make it follow...
