Prodrone Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce it has developed the PD6B-AW-ARM, a large-format drone equipped with two internally-developed robotic arms, enabling it to directly accomplish a variety of tasks.
PRODRONE will showcase the new model at its booth at InterDrone, The International Drone Conference and Exposition, to be held September 7-9, 2016 in Las Vegas.
This video presents an autonomous 250 g quadrotor performing aggressive maneuvers using a qualcomm snapdragon flight and relying only on on-board computation and sensor capabilities. The control planning and estimation tasks are solved based on the information provided by a single camera and an IMU.
We show aggressive trajectories around poles and narrow window gaps at different inclinations. Our system is able to traverse narrow gaps requiring accelerations up to 1.5 g and roll and pitch angles up to 90 degrees with velocities of 5 m/s.
