#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (6/N)

Hi! Today is code time also! And a continuation from my previous sample. Yesterday I show how to read a static value: the battery. And, when you work with a device like a drone there are other important values to analyze in order to send commands to the drone. Like altitude, position, time of flight…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (6/N)

#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (5/N)

Hi! Today is code time! In my previous post I share some code to send commands to the drone. Today I’ll show how to read the information from the drone. Before I start, someone asked if my kids are having fun with the drone. A image will be enough to answer this. Reading drone information…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (5/N)

#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (3/N)

Hi! Today I’ll write the equivalent of a Hello World in the drone ecosystem. This is a very complex app which: take off the dronewait a couple of secondslands the drone I’ve followed the Python code sample from the SDK and the final code is very complex (see below). And it deserves some remarks Line…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (3/N)

#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (2/N)

Hi! I my previous posts I shared some links about the DJI Tello drone. One of them is the SDK 1.3.0.0. In this document we can find the main commands and descriptions of the specifics commands to use to communicate with the drone. The document also links a Python sample file with the following code:…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (2/N)

#Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (1/N)

Hi ! I’ll start to write a couple of posts about controlling a drone using Python. This all started at the end of 2019 when my friend Daniel (@danielcauser) told me that he was playing around with the DJI Tello Drone (see references). This drone is a small quadcopter that features a Vision Positioning System…… Continue reading #Coding4Fun – How to control your #drone with 20 lines of code! (1/N)

#RaspberryPi – Install Virtual Environments

Hi! Virtual Environments are a great way to isolate our dev tests, and after been using this in Windows also, work with them in the Raspberry Pi makes a lot of sense. I’ll leave here the necessary steps to do this, however the full credit is based on some posts from Adrian Rosebrock and his…… Continue reading #RaspberryPi – Install Virtual Environments

#RaspberryPi – Performance differences in #FaceRecognition using #OpenVino (code with @code!)

Hi ! I’ve been looking to use the amazing Intel Neural Stick 2 for a while, and one of the 1st ideas that I have was to check how fast my Raspberry Pi 4 can run using this device. The Intel team released a nice step by step process installation for Raspberry Pi. And it…… Continue reading #RaspberryPi – Performance differences in #FaceRecognition using #OpenVino (code with @code!)

#RaspberryPi – Install OpenCV

Hi! After some posts about how to setup a Raspberry Pi, today I’ll share the steps I follow to install OpenCV. Disclaimer: if you are looking for a detailed step by step on how to install or even build OpenCV in a Raspberry Pi, I strongly recommend to read the post “Install OpenCV on Raspberry…… Continue reading #RaspberryPi – Install OpenCV
