Graduation assignment at logica

Posted by Ingmar Hendriks on 27 August 2010

Everything must come to an end! This, sadly, is also true for my studies at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. Only one more semester and than i'm done. But before i graduate, i need to complete a graduation assignment. I have chosen to do this at logica.nl. 

My assignment:
For my assignment i'm going to build a quadro copter with automatic gps navigation. 

What is a quadro copter?:
"A quadrotor, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrocopter, is an aircraft that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadrotors are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is derived from four rotors. They can also be classified as helicopters, though unlike standard helicopters, quadrotors use fixed-pitch blades, whose rotor pitch does not vary as the blades rotate. Control of vehicle motion can be achieved by varying the relative speed of each rotor to change the thrust and torque produced by each." as described on wikipedia.
