Always Innovating has announced a new product, the MeCam (www.alwaysinnovating.com/products/mecam.htm), a self video nano copter to point-and-shoot yourself. The MeCam launches from the palm of a hand and hovers instantly. This talk will review the lessons learned during the design of this product:
* hardware â CPU: the choice and the different trade-offs involved with this selection.
* hardware â sensors: the complete list of the 14 sensors, their advantages and drawbacks.
* software â core: the architecture of the Linux based system and the key challenges.
* software â stabilization algorithm: the experience during the tuning of the different algorithms
participating to the self hovering.
This talk targets developer with good expertise in both hardware and software. No deep knowledge in a specific field is mandatory but serious understanding of ARM and the Linux kernel is a plus.
