An autonomous Quadcopter Incredibadger Kyle Allen EET
John Baden CET
Shareece Fraley EET
John F. Keogh V CET
Tim Schardine EET Introduction Flight and Stability of a Quadcopter The Arduino UNO Microcontroller Range finding Theory of Operation Development
Integration Flight and Stability of a Quadcopter Theory of Operation Quadcopter Platform Ease of manipulation 2 options for direction change (Roll and Yaw) Proven to be the most stable amidst other RC aircraft platforms

We incorporated 4 IR sensors and two ultrasonic sensors for proximity warnings and feedback For control we used the ATMega 328 Microcontroler found in some Arduino prototype boards Tim created a Printed Circuit Board for the ATMega 328 for our specific needs Autonomous UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) The Incredibadger OR And sometimes Max Sonar EZ0 Dynamic Feedback The sensors feed back were not only used
for proximity warnings but also for allowing the unit to know which direction it is moving from Arduino Microcontroller and IDE
ATMEGA Chip Series
Language based on Java and C++
Massive amounts of open-source code and documentation Software Read and store data from sensors in a structured form.
Interpret data from sensors as representing distances.
Based on the distance data, determine the best path to travel to target without collision (forward, left, right, etc).
Output the appropriate commands to the Electronic Speed Controllers (ESC’s) via multithreaded PWM.
Rinse and repeat as necessary. Pulse-width Modulation (PWM) Summary of Requirements Sensor Placement Theory Sensor Placement Testing Board Development And now we fly Where we go from here Budget and parts list Questions? Incredi-weeny Share all of our code and information We designed a test bed for other people to build from We made an incredibadger Facebook The budget for our project was
for everyone to put in $200 to $250 Also, we uploaded all of our code to the
Arduino site
