Basic Quadcopter with Obstacle Avoidance

Undergraduate Research Project
Adviser: Professor Diez​​

Created a simple avoidance system for a quadrotor to decrease the likelihood of a crash.

  • 4 sonars to control the pitch and roll
  • PWM signals are modified through an Arduino which processes all incoming messages from the transmitter and autopilot
  • Some stability issues as my gains are not perfect
  • Very similar to the eBumper 4 (displayed above) which is an add-on for quadcopters giving them this obstacle avoidance feature
