Camera on Crazyflie 2.0

Post by droneEnthusiast » Tue Jan 22, 2019 9:00 am

Hi there!

I am relatively new to drones/electronics.

Although this has been asked before, I believe those threads are somewhat outdated. (I guess FPVhobby is not in business anymore so most of the links don't work). Could someone please explain how to add a camera onto the Crazyflie 2.0 for SLAM?

Could you please add some links to hardware you used to connect the camera to you Crazyflie?

Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated!

Hi and welcome!

Doing video based SLAM on such a small platform is very challenging. This try might have been one of the best ones that I know of so far but it involves streaming video to computer.

Another option is to use the Multi-ranger deck + Flow deck and try to achieve SLAM with that.

Hi!

Thank you for the response!

I also viewed this thread and read the thesis - it's great work. However, I was having issues finding the camera/transmitter/voltage regulator used for this project. Any chance I could get recommendations?

Also, thanks for the suggestion about using the Multi-ranger deck and Flow deck. I'll be sure to try that out.
