I would like to build a quadcopter with Follow-me mode based on visual tracking with a Pixhawk.
I plan to use OpenCV libraries with a single-board computer. Would you advice Odroid, Snapdragon, Raspberry Pi, … ?
Can I use my regular camera or should I use a camera like raspberry pi camera v2, PX4FLOW Smart Camera, OpenMV Cam M7, PIXY Cmucam5, … ?
I don’t really understand whether these cameras have a single-board computer included.
Do I need a telemetry module for this ?
Thanks a lot
I am curious, did you ever do something with this idea? I would be really curious to give something like this a shot.
No I finally didn’t put any camera on my quadcopter but I built something
that flies well
You can use the build-in follow-me mode on the Pixhawk. For more accurate
follow-me, you could probably use some machine learning algorithms of
Good luck with this project !
There’s a simple blob-tracking visual follow-me in dronekit-python https://github.com/dronekit/visual-followme
It could be modified to be more sophisticated.
