The Flying Gator: Towards Aerial Robotics in occam-π
Authors: Armstrong, Ian, Pirrone-Brusse, Michael, Smith, A, Jadud, Matthew C.
Abstract:The Flying Gator is an unmanned aerial vehicle developed to support investigations regarding concurrent and parallel control for robotic and embedded systems. During ten weeks in the summer of 2010, we designed, built, and tested an airframe, control electronics, and a concurrent firmware capable of sustaining autonomous level flight. Ultimately, we hope to have a robust, open source control system capable of supporting interesting research questions exploring concurrency in real time systems as well as current issues in sustainable agriculture.
