Programming drones

Post by eratostenes » 30 Oct 2017, 21:30


I am new to the whole world of drones, first of all, I want to make clear that my intention is not to have a "racing" drone or to "record a beautiful landscape". I am a computer programmer, and I would like to "play" with the drone, that is, program features for the drone etc ...

First I had thought of building my own drone from scratch, but it is too much work and I have seen that the AR 2.0 elite edition is not too expensive, my question is Can I run code to the drone? Software that I program? What operating system do you use? Can I connect to the operating system of the drone via ssh?

I feel if my questions are somewhat silly, I am completely new to this.

Thank you very much.

there are many different ways to program an AR.Drone. For quick results have a look at the node js frameworks for the AR.Drone.

AR.Drone does not run a sshd but you can connect via telnet. Which is not needed because the code is usually not running on the AR.Drone itself.

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.
