Hello World

Hello everyone, my name is Ayman and I am doing my Final Year Project under the supervision of Dr. Shawn Tan. In my first blog post I will…

Time Response and Conclusions

Following on from the problems faced during the last weeks of the project, the attempts of hacking the toy quad-copter was abandoned to allow for the completion of…

Troubleshooting Quadcopter Communication

Continuing on from the long-standing attempts at hacking the quadcopter remote communication, a few methods were used to find out exactly why the communication wouldn’t work. These methods…

Communicating like a Quadcopter

Following last week’s information on the communication data coming from the Quadcopter remote, the next logical step was to replicate it so that the Arduino can be used…

Image Segmentation

Considering the issues with color detection method in the previous section method used for the image processing section of the project, the Image segmentation method was tested out….

Quadcopter Remote Eavesdropping

Almost all of the week was spent trying to read the SPI bus on the Quadcopter remote control to try to understand as well as decipher the communication…

Fixes and Location Detection

It has been a long time since my last blog post. My progress has been slow over the past 4 months but the important thing is that I’m…

Debugging CPU

In this post I’ll explain how I debug the new core of AEMB, and the current bug that I’m facing. Debugging the CPU takes place using the demo…

CPU Modifications

In the previous post I’ve explained how the threading model of the new AEMB. In this post I will explain all the changes to the old AEMB core…

Coarse-Grained Threading

Finally I’ve changed the threading model of the AEMB. While some instructions are still buggy and hence the demo program doesn’t run properly, I still want to use…

Swarm Simulations, Quadcopter Design

This week the focus was given on trying to develop a simple simulation to test out one of the algorithms discussed the previous week. The algorithm used to…

Swarm robotic algorithms, more hacking and a new quad copter

This past week was a great struggle to try to get the quad copter to talk back to the Arduino. As discussed last week, the Arduino library DZL…

Learning to talk to each other

So after receiving my communicators last week, I finally got the shipment of the Arduino Uno, and yeah I know that it is in fact a cheaper Chinese…

Good Communication is everything

It was a pretty busy week once again since I had to study for tests, finish lab reports and write my Logbook for this project to get signed…

First Wings

Its been a pretty slow week in terms of meaningful progress on the project. A few tough assignments during the week and a couple of tests meant I…
