Thanks to Julian for writing in to share this project! Check out more here. He writes:
The project is an attempt at building a swarm of uas for search and rescue. The flight controller is built completely from adafruit parts. (M0 adalogger, bno055, bmp180, xbee, etc) All housed on an oshpark PCB. The flight controller flies the aircraft with PID control doing all computiations, sensor io and command of the servos on board the pcb. A gui is used to task the aircraft in real time as it flies. Very much still a work in progress. Will be doing a full write up of this semsters work on hackaday.io in the next week or two
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
