We wanted to create a custom FPV for a quadcopter drone that would be able to be modified to follow faces, turn according to device orientation, and view stereoscopic images in VR.

What it does

The Raspberry Pi camera interfaces with a Linux machine over untethered WiFi. The drone is outfitted so that the controller can view their path of flight as it occurs.

How we built it

We initially deployed a Node.js app to a Raspberry Pi camera through an Apache server in order to convert images from the feed into stereoscopic view. We later switched to a feed directly transmitted from the Pi camera to a Linux machine.
