  • LCM – Lightweight, Communications and MarshallingAndroid tablets which are increasingly less expensive - Similar hardware to Galaxy Tab 10.1, Sony Tablet S, any tablet running Honeycomb or aboveAllows autonomous flight mode and manual flight mode without distinct switching
  • Explain features in picturesRight Picture (Manual Control Mode) Altimeter Attitude Meter Manual Controls WaypointsLeft Picture (Autonomous Control Mode) Google Map allows waypoints by touch Camera feeds for each camera on the device Arrows control the selected waypoint for fine placement Commands allow vehicle mode changes (landing, idle, take off)
  • Diagram shows the inputs and outputs for each component in the system.The vehicle sends: Vehicle Dynamics Data Location Coordinates Streaming Video – talk about bandwidth and processing power for 3 streams on tablet or on the vehicleThe tablet outputs Waypoints and commands through LCMUser inputs Button touches Widget Positioning Offline Region – explain offline need Waypoint positions
  • Users of tablets and smartphones are going to know how to control an AIRCRAFT!Millions of users of Google Maps means the interface will be familiar for setting waypointsSet it and forget it!Not able to change a hardware controller. Pick the parameters you want to monitor during flight.LCM allows communication with any device that implements our communication protocol.See how well the device performed over time. Allows future improvements in design and control of vehicle.
