What it does
The drone is programmed to run a pre-determined flight. The drone can move up, down, left and right on its own as well as performing a couple of tricks like flipping and waving.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We were having troubles accessing the video feed and programming the drone to recognize faces and objects.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to start from scratch and learn how to program a drone without any knowledge of drones. Even though we weren't able to execute our idea, we were able to put on a show using the capabilities of the drone.
What we learned
We learned how to program a drone as well as the commands that program the drone to execute an action. We learned how the drone works and how to hack a drone to run an autonomous flight on its own.
What's next for The Hunt
The next task for The Hunt would be to program the facial recognition software, a trigger that would allow the drone to takeoff, and a sensor to avoid obstacles in its way.
