ABOUT The purpose of this application is to create a wide range of remote control devices for a mini helicopter. The application contain the following features Send directions based on phone orientation Continue monitoring outside temperature A live feed video transmission
ABOUT The application is continue updating the helicopter’s parameters using a Bluetooth infrastructure. This data is computed from original sensor output and based on o mini communication protocol 8 bytes frames are exchange between this two devices. The sensors and adapters used in algorithms Accelerometer Gyroscope Bluetooth adapter
