Functionality Check

  1. Run student_infrared_pub.py and open up the web interface. Move the drone up and down and ensure that the height readings are reasonable.
  2. Run student_vision_flow_and_phase.py and open up the web interface. Turn on velocity control (enabled by default). Slowly move the drone around over a highly textured planar surface and ensure that the raw velocity readings are reasonable.

Questions

Modified 2019-12-04 by andrewkpeterson

You will be asked to answer one of the following questions:

  1. What types of measurements does the flight controller report in order to describe the orientation of the drone? What do we do to these measurements and why?
  2. How does optical flow allow us to estimate the planar velocity of the drone? Why do we need to fly over a textured surface?
  3. Why do we have a state_callback in student_analyze_phase.py? What do we do with the state information?
