Automatically Controlling a Quadcopter


Quadcopters have very high maneuverability and agility. However, it is difficult to manually fly very small quadcopters, as even a small change in controls or air currents can greatly impact their behavior, which makes reproducing results difficult. The goal of this project was to allow a computer to control the quadcopter using a depth sensing camera, which would allow for easily reproducible results.
