Our project goal to design a Quadcopter capable of self-sustained flight via wireless communications while utilizing a microcontroller. The Quadcopter will be designed to be small enough so that costs would be minimized, which is why small motors and propellers are being used. While a nano arduino, accelerometer, camera, GPS, and gyroscope are communicating between each other to maintain control. The scheduler program arranges the following tasks: controller input, sensor data received from the accelerometer, Gyroscope, GPS, and Magnetometer. The wireless transceivers use SPI to send control signals to the microcontroller on the quadcopter from the handheld controller unit. The accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer will use to send the amount of acceleration, stabilization, and the direction vector. The motors are being controlled by the PWM ports on the nano arduino. We can control the direction of flight by the speed of motor. The camera can be used to take picture and life video.
