AR.Drone – user upload (video summary)
This video has been uploaded to The-Parrot-ARDrone.com by user juhapekkapiiroinen. Here is a summary of the video in their own words:
After coding several hours (@MeeGo Summit FI 2011, Tampere, summit.meegonetwork.fi) and making a lot of mistakes and retries with the code, the first prototype is ok. I am able to control AR.Drone using simple PushButtons on a Dialog. There are a lot of small things to be done, however I am not sure if I am able to solve the issue with the OpenCV. For some reason I am unable to convert from QImage to suitable format for OpenCV. And I also have an issue with the MeeGo 1.1 Netbook image on EeePC 901. For some reason I am unable to make ad-hoc wlan network connection which is required by the AR.Drone.. However I will publish an RPM package of the current version what you see also on the video, as it can be used on the devices without touch screen. The source code is available @ http and some technical notes are on the same site in the wiki.
