VGA bottom camera in R200 as Optical flow sensor

Hi,

As mentioned in this article : https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-aero-compute-board-and-intel-realsense-technology-fo... RealSense - Intel® Aero Compute Board and Intel® RealSense™ Technology for Wi-Fi* Streaming of RGB Data | Intel® Softwar…

"With the VGA and its global shutter, one use case could be optical flow, which a developer could implement."

Does anyone try to use this camera as optical flow sensor and disable GPS in Intel Aero drone? Is there any documentation about this issue?

As I know, we need to use optical flow sensor for indoor flights but I do not know where to start form.

Kind Regards,

Soubhi

Hi Soubhi,

 

 

Thanks for contacting us!

 

 

I have been looking for information about how to do that, however, at this moment I have not found relevant information, so I would like to investigate a little bit more and as soon as I have useful information I'll let you know.

 

 

I'll appreciate your patience during the meantime.

Hi Soubhi,

 

 

Please accept our apologies for the delay in our response. There are no documents about using the camera as optical flow, however, we'd like to share this guide that may find useful: http://www.instructables.com/id/Intel-Aero-Drone-Altitude-and-Position-Hold-Using-/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Intel-Aero-Drone-Altitude-and-Position-Hold-Using-/
