Our application rose from our wish to easily automate our drone, the Parrot ARDrone, without having to code the instructions or run from the command line.
What it does
Parrot Remote is a web application built to send instructions to the Parrot ARDrone. Here, users have access to set the command, order, and time to execute each order. A simple automation controller for users who would rather not write lengthy code for each flight.
How we built it
Challenges We ran into
Integrating the UI with the automation code was challenging. Regrettably, we did not have time to fully combine the code before Hack AZ's deadline.
Accomplishments that We're proud of
This project introduced several concepts of which we were not familiar, namely, Node JS and the mechanics of drone flight. We were very proud to have learned and applied so much in such a short amount of time, and we were especially proud of the way our web application turned out.
What's next for Drone Remote
Of course, the front and back end of this project would need to be combined if we were to ever carry the project further. However, most of us felt the project was merely a good first look into drone programming, and will use the experience to begin new projects in the future.
