Abstract

This project continues an MQP from the 2011-12 academic year: Development of an Autonomous Blimp. The objective of our project was to modify the existing design by implementing autonomous flight capability using an Android phone, a power system capable of tracking energy usage, and a camera mission module for aerial photography. Through testing and flight tests, we demonstrated that we successfully implemented non-optimized autonomous flight, portions of the power system design, and a camera mission module.
