AR.Drone 2.0 Support from Embedded Coder

Deploy Simulink models and controllers to AR.Drone 2.0 using Embedded Coder

Capabilities and Features

The AR.Drone 2.0 Quadcopter Embedded Coder target allows users to build customized controllers for the AR.Drone 2.0 in MATLAB, and Simulink and automatically build and deploy them onto the drone via Wi-Fi. Users can add to existing models and controllers to enhance the AR.Drone 2.0 design or start from scratch and build their own quadcopter controller.

Highlights include:

  • Automatically deploy code generated from Simulink to the AR.Drone 2.0 via Wi-Fi
  • Utilize External Mode to monitor and tune algorithms as the code is running
  • Simulink template models and controllers can be used to get started prototyping your own design
  • Step by step examples explain how to access the AR Drone 2.0 hardware in Simulink.
  • Background information about the AR Drone 2.0 target explaining automatic code generation.
  • Default firmware reinstalls when vehicle restarts so you do not have to worry about re-flashing
