Yes, I kwon that this is not gonna be so easy, But as I'm concious about it, I'll follow through, I've posted it on the Beginners Section, Because is my first time working with the pi, I've got some years working on computer software, and some time in embedded systems (from pic, to arm), even a little bit in linux (suse) now, I want to take it to a newer level, even though ot doesn't work in the first time, or doesn't exactly avoid it to crash, at less to be able to detect things and "track" them, would be a good start.Reaching for the stars, are we?
Since you posted this in the beginners section, I will assume that you don't have much experience with programming. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
There's no shame in reaching for the stars or diving in the deep end of the pool etc, but to successfully do so with limited experience you need to realize how big the task is. The fact that your listed questions range from "a quick 2 minute fix" to "humongous task which requires years of experience" gives me the feeling that you don't quite realize the difficulty level of this project.
Building a basically autonomous helicopter is a daunting task unless you have a LOT of experience in electronics, programming and hardware interfacing. With the proper university education and a few years of work experience in the field, you might be able to successfully complete this project in a few months time if working full time. Without previous experience, we're talking years.
If you still want to take on this project, first you need to become a skilled programmer. This alone may take years, depending on available free time and your ability to learn and think like a programmer.
Once you're an able programmer, it will be easier to find solutions, make designs etc. If you're looking for a cookbook way of doing this, or think there's a simple "just-put-some-stuff-together-and-it-will-work" solution, I'm afraid that's the wrong angle to approach this project.
I know, but at less I need to detect and track defined objets, later we might think about avoiding colisionsalexchamberlain wrote:One camera isn't enough to compute distances and avoid obstacles.
