Part 1: Estimating Height with the Infrared Sensor

Modified 2020-10-22 by sageshoyu

The infrared (IR) sensor on your PiDrone outputs a voltage V . This voltage has a inverse relationship with your drone’s height h (when h is between .1 and .6 meters). So, we can say that

h = m\frac{1}{V} + b

for some m and b .

  1. Given two ordered pairs that satisfy this relationship, (V_1, h_1) and (V_2, h_2) , what are the values of m and b in the equation?
