A me le MANI !!!!! Ecco il leap-drone ovvero come pilotare un drone usando solo il movimento delle mani.
How the device s are interconnected together?
the leap-motion is an infrared camera that send the frames of the hands to the computer. Which take this frames and by making a lot of calculation based on the image processing theory extract the useful values. So this values are sent to my homemade PCB that transform the USB or blue-tooth values in a single PPM signal (pulse period modulation). This signal is sent to a transmitter and so the quad-copter finally reach the values.
Andrea Chesi IIS Tito Sarrocchi Siena
An electronics enthusiast, he has developed in recent years various projects related to robotics increasingly complex, exhibiting them at various fairs and electronics markets, and achieving great success.
Since last year Andrea has been attracted by the new bridges of augmented reality and specifically from "leap motion" infrared cameras that can recognize hand movements.
The challenge with the "leap motion" began last year, controlling with a hand movement a simpler system consisting of a ball in a rocker plane.
In this school year Andrea wanted to deal with a more complex system, piloting a drone without a classic radio-command, using only the movement of the hands.
The project also created a site that illustrates the various parts of the project and the results obtained with an interesting video of the drone flying, piloted only with the hands.
