Capabilities and Features
The AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter Embedded Coder® target allows users to build customized controllers for the AR.Drone 2.0 in MATLAB®, and Simulink® and automatically build and deploy them onto the drone via Wi-Fi. Users can add to existing models and controllers to enhance the AR.Drone 2.0 design or start from scratch and build their own quadcopter controller.
- Automatically deploy code generated from Simulink to the AR.Drone 2.0 via Wi-Fi
- Utilize External Mode to monitor and tune algorithms as the code is running
- Simulink template models and controllers can be used to get started prototyping your own design
- Step by step examples explain how to access the AR Drone 2.0 hardware in Simulink.
- Background information about the AR Drone 2.0 target explaining automatic code generation.
- Default firmware reinstalls when vehicle restarts so you do not have to worry about re-flashing
