Beagle Board -

Autonomous Robotics platform

Design, prototype and develop an autonomous aerial vehicle system, allowing experimentation with real-time control and computer vision algorithms

Philosophy * make robotics and embedded control accessible and fun * stimulate cross-field learning and collaboration * leverage modularity and reuse to get more done, quicker Technical goals * develop generalised physics model for eg computing optimal PID controlled motor outputs * decouple high-update-rate sensors from lower-rate output control * employ OpenCV for visual tracking/SLAM/feature detection * build lean tracked (land) vehicle * build lean quad-rotor (air) vehicle * use a shared, modular code-base and electronics platform (via BeagleBoard)
