Aerial robotics provides many practical applications in fields such as search and rescue and surveying. In order to advance the research in aerial robotics, an inexpensive test platform is required. Our four-rotor platform provides researchers with a inexpensive, fully scalable test platform for future studies. Its completely on-board processing removes the need for a virtual tether in the form of a radio transmitter, allowing for completely autonomous operation.
