Galois Tech Talks

abstract:
It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's an open-source autonomous quad-copter. In collaboration with the Portland State University Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept., Galois mentored a Spring semester Senior Capstone Project to build an ArduCopter. The ArduCopter is based on the Arduino open-source hardware platform, and includes infrared sensors (collision avoidance), sonar and barometer (altitude hold), GPS (location), magnetometer (direction), and gyro (stabilization). This talk will include a description of the ArduCopter and it's operation, including the trials and tribulations of building and testing one. Of course, the talk will include cool videos.

bio:
The team consists of PSU students Nicholas Begley, Dave Dung Anh, James Heilinger, Alec Rasmussen, and Mark Theuson. Lee Pike of Galois was the industry sponsor for the project, and Prof. Marek Perkowski of PSU was the faculty sponsor.
