Drone obstacle avoidance indoor flight

In this use case, you’ll see TeraRanger Tower and TeraRanger Evo enabling drone with obstacle avoidance indoor flight (GPS-denied). A single TeraRanger Evo controls the altitude of the drone whilst TeraRanger Tower prevents the drone from flying into static and dynamic obstacles. This configuration is compatible with Pixhawk running ArduCopter. See our detailed post here for full setup details and […]

Obstacle avoidance for indoor drone flight!

Recently we evaluated performance of indoor obstacle avoidance on a quacopter with Pixhawk running ArduPilot and equipped with a TeraRanger Tower and TeraRanger Evo distance sensor for drones. This report presents our setup and the results. Parts used: DJI 450 Flamewheel frame DJI E310 propulsion system Custom 3D printed legs (https://www.thingiverse.com/make:38863 are an alternative) Custom […]

TeraRanger Tower enabling robotic collision avoidance and autonomous navigation

Fantastic video of a Kobuki traveling in a maze and performing robotic localization, robotic collision avoidance and robotic navigation with the non-rotating multi-axis 2D scanner TeraRanger Tower.  The robot recognizes the environment and navigates into it with a simple “click and go”.  The on-board software automatically highlights in blue proximity obstacles and, very importantly, if a new […]
