Project Title

Auto-pilot: Autonomous control of a remote controlled helicopter

Project Description

The aim of this project is to create a system that simulates an autopilot for a Syma S107 mini helicopter. This helicopter must be tracked using a Kinect camera and sent messages in real time using an Arduino board, in order to make it fly autonomously. Even though a mini helicopter's performance will be quite different to that of a full size one, it is a feasible and fun starting point.
