Hello from germany ;-)
Im trying to track colors with my AR Drone 2.
Tutorial 31 (ARDrone) works really well. The video is nearly without latency and i made some modifications to controlling the drone with my joystick/gamepad. This works pretty good, too!
In Tutorial 11 (Color Tracking) works with my webcam, but i have a delay of about 1,5 seconds, but thats not really the problem. The Problem is, that im thinking that tutorial 11 only works with the ARDrone 1.
Is there a possobility to use the ARDrone 2 with the method Camera.StartCamera?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
Also, Tutorial 11 is only moving a servo - the AR Drone is a flying drone, not a servo. A servo is a mechanical motor that moves and used in robotics - for limbs, and joints, etc..
the Tutorial 31 demonstrates how to connect and control the AR drone using direct commands. You can also use the Movement Panel - this is why there are many projects in the EZ-SDK package. Including many packages demonstrates how you can do all of the different things. It would be absolutely impossible to have a single gigantic project that demonstrates everything the EZ-SDK is capable of doing. I would recommend using ARC as well.
I am on vacation and do not have an AR Drone with me at the moment - however, I have modified the Tutorial 31 code to include an example of how camera color tracking works. I have attached it here...
good luck and happy new year
Thank you Dj Sures! That will help me very much to implement color tracking in my application.
I know that Tutorial 11 was not written for the ARDrone, but the Combobox shows me a "AR Parrot Drone", so i thought it will work with the AR Drone (probably only V1, because the tutorial was written a long time ago ;-)).
And i know, that the Tutorials only show a few possibilities of the SDK, but they are good to learn an understand the SDK.
And sure, the EZ-SDK is not only for the ARDrone.
I have to say, after a long search in the internet, for me it is the best way to work with my ARDrone. There are a few alternatives, but mostly based on linux.
And now, enjoy your holidays an an happy new year!
Enjoy your holidays as well!
