    The Parrot AR.Drone – an RC quadricopter

    @kidovate I was out of characters so anyway the drone stays at a considerable height above the NXT car so that it can see the surrounding area. It then uses other markers on the ground (found from the drone) to navigate the car. Yaw syncronization is done with the idea of two different colors on the robot, red front, blue back. That way, the robot knows which way it is facing in relationship to the path.

    Ideas 😀

    Okay, so you can link URBI with Java and C++ etc. I am almost TOTALLY sure there is a library for every single joystick/video game controller out there for java/c++. That would also open up huge doorways for complicated vision systems like PTAM and SLAM. I am currently working on a project which allows a Mindstorms NXT car and a ARDrone to collaborate together to achieve a task – I.E the drone hovers over the car as it drives (use the color tracker for the bottom camera).
