How to use the AR Parrot Drone Movement robot skill

The AR Drone Movement Panel allows control of an AR Parrot Drone Quadcopter v1 and v2.

When using the keyboard mode, the A and Z keys are used for Up and Down. The Arrow keys are used to move the robot Forward, Reverse, Rotate Left, and Rotate Right

ARC software enables speech recognition, joystick control, Wii control, web control, and camera tracking - track faces, colors, motion, and glyphs.

Video Device

As mentioned in the Camera Device Manual, the AR Parrot Drone Movement Panel must be added to the project, configured (select the drone version), and connected to the drone (wifi) for the video to work on the Camera Device.

The Camera Device control can be added to your project, and the Custom may be selected as a video device. If the Custom video device is selected, it will receive the AR Parrot Drone Movement Panel video feed.


Specify AR Drone Version

You must configure the AR Parrot Drone Version in the configure menu before the movement panel connects to the drone.
