Woohooo, I'm going to Tokyo!
Our paper was accepted to a robotics conference. We have the pleasure of playing with tiny drones, and we get paid and rewarded for it!

    Congrats!

    Why is the drone so slow btw? And why does it go up & down?

    Congratulations!
    Look forward to the papers!

    I'm a big fan of your robotics projects and actually jealous even :-)

    @retoor Because Hanna is flying it without directly seeing it, just through the images that are sent to the laptop. The wifi module onboard is weak - bandwidth and latency issues.

    I'm assuming you're using opencv for this. Is the feed being fed to a separate machine or onboard? Congrats! Here's your first JP word that you need to practice: SUMIMASEN!

    @fruitfcker We are not using OpenCV. The onboard computing unit doesn't even have a real OS. We have our own deployment pipeline for running quantized inference onboard.

    Very cool - the speed of the detection mapping is super impressive. I can’t imagine the work that went in. Hope you win an award!

    That's amazing! You should be very proud of yourself. I checked out some of your robotic projects and I think it's all really cool! I too, work with robots - though they're not the kind that move around, more the industrial type. :-)
