This week, we conducted lots of flying test under Opti-track system. Here we showed one example of vertical flying test. After data has been processed: position plot: velocity plot:

This notes are quick notes after I have tested all Create code in practice. It contains the terms which easy to make people puzzled and somethings left to do. I marked this note in case to forget before I continue to finish the left parts. Important terms in code: binary_1d: u (event) is binary...

This week, I sucessfully used Ansys fluent software to get the CFD analysis of specified saucer-shape balloon as shown in the following figures.

It took me quite amount of time to finish calculating the drag coefficient of this example(plane) in analysis fluent. Drag coefficient calculation: Fluid relative velocity plot:

There are two things I would like to demonstrate: We can rapidly complete iterative design, for a device that failed initially. We can predict failure ahead of time. There are more things I would like to show: - A. Our design tool can be used on different materials Isotropic ma...

The below figure shows a ground truth body trajectory (gt, black) and ground truth landmarks (lmk, blue). The goal is to run a SLAM simulation using NLS optimization as the backend and vision as the front end. A dead reckoning signal (dr, red) is generated using an IMU (with noise) and feature point...

The crazyflie system is primarily designed to be used as a quadcopter but can be modified to be usable as a blimp. This requires both a change in the propellor configuration (hardware) as well as a change in the firmware. The process of modifying the firmware is described in the following tutorial...

We succeeded in getting the GMU board to drive a motor and to control a servo. However, when it came to testing its Wi-Fi capabilities, we ran into a problem. After turning on the onboard ESP32's Wi-Fi, an error message was displayed as below After some research, we determined that the error w...
