DroneAPI: A Tutorial on Drone Control - Kevin Hester, 3DRobotics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

DroneAPI is a small API that provides simple 'high level' drone operations (go here, do this, etc...). The goal being to hide protocol 'plumbing' required to make drones do useful things. We will begin by describing the use-cases this open-source project is meant to address. We will then walk through the creation of a working application that can control drones (either in simulation or the real world). You will step out of the classroom with a working python program that can control a drone and guidelines for experimenting with drones in the field.
