In this project, a quadcopter (quad-rotor helicopter) is used to showcase how data can be interpreted into a set of functions that make a corrected autonomous flight. The quadcopter has a built-in camera that has been programmed to work as a tracking system in places where navigation systems are not accessible. However, this project is still in progress. At the moment, the work in the tracking system is done, and we can detect objects up to 25 feet away.
