This project will involve setting up the Raspberry Pi as a semi-autonomous aerial video platform for indoor use. This would be a useful tool for broadcasting live video of a stage performance to multiple screens throughout an event. The blimp will be non intrusive and provide a unique view of any show.
Lift will be achieved by using an inflatable blimp with maneuvering thrusters and sensors that can be controlled via a simple web UI from any connected device. The device will host two types of broadcast output; a video feed with a watermark, and a control UI with a smaller video feed.
- Ability to switch from PTP control, to remote control over the Internet.
- Automatic obstetrical avoidance.
- Way point based navigation for auto pilot.
