Alltronics Miniature UAV A miniature UAV or Small UAV (SUAV), is an unmanned aerial vehicle small enough to be man-portable. Miniature UAVs range from micro air vehicles (MAVs) that can be carried by an infantryman, to man-portable UAVs that can be carried and launched like an infantry anti-aircraft missile. MAVs and mesicopters The notion that small, even very small, UAVs might have practical uses arose in the early 1990s. In 1992, DARPA conducted a workshop titled "Future Technology-Driven Revolutions In Military Operations". One of the topics in the workshop was "mobile microrobots". The RAND Corporation released a paper on the microdrone concept in 1994 that was widely circulated (Reference 12). The studies demonstrated that the concept was feasible. Phase-two MAVs This phase-one DARPA study ended in 2001, and was followed by a phase-two study that focused on particular vendors with an intent to develop MAVs closer to operational specification.

RC ROVER® Man Portable Unmanned Ground Vehicles How to Build a Robot Tutorials - Society of Robots Computer Vision vs Machine Vision Computer vision and machine vision differ in how images are created and processed. Computer vision is done with everyday real world video and photography. Machine vision is done in oversimplified situations as to significantly increase reliability while decreasing cost of equipment and complexity of algorithms. As such, machine vision is used for robots in factories, while computer vision is more appropriate for robots that operate in human environments. Machine vision is more rudimentary yet more practical, while computer vision relates to AI. You can also do other neat tricks with images, such as thresholding only a particular color like red. The basic shapes are very easy, but as you get into more complex shapes (pattern recognition) you will have to use probability analysis. What the algorithm does is labels each blob by a number, counting up for every new blob it encounters. In this below video, I ran a few algorithms in tandem.

Despite sounding quite general, the term ROV appears to be applied exclusively toremotely operated underwater vehicles - basically, robot submarines - rather than just any kind of vehicle which is remotely operated. "Real" ROVs, like the Seaeye Falcon, pictured below are capable of diving hundreds of metres under the surface of the ocean and find a wide range of applications in both the commercial world (underwater oil drilling operations being a topical example) and the scientific research community. The precise designs of these hobby ROVs varies somewhat, but there are a few things that they all seem to have in common, which contribute to their simple construction and low cost: I've done some fairly thorough scouring of the web for resources on how to build these things.

Conrad Electronic SE - Your Online Shop for Multimedia, Computers, Cars, Components, Modelling, Batteries & Tools The Booz Thread Starting this thread to separate the Booz information away from the huge general Paparazzi thread and as requested by the PPZ store owner so as not to advertise in his thread. Booz is Quad Rotor UAV project that uses some of the Paparazzi code as its base, it is Open Source and licensed under the GPL license. This thread will be a place for all things Booz including the progress of the Booz hardware myself and Gussy are getting made. This will be for sale shortly (around one week) and will sell for US$850 including cables. It has the following features: Anyway, this thread is for all things Booz.
