Twenty-eight minute video includes multiple tests from several different camera angles and parachute recovery systems.
This work presents the capabilities and demonstrates the robustness of the “Pico Quadrotor” – the smallest autonomous quadrotor at the time of publication of this video.
We also demonstrate the pico quadrotor’s ability to fly in formations and its robustness to collisions with the environment. Submitted to ICRA 2015.
