Our UAV project got a nice mention on the Linux site, Linux.com, in the article: Linux Takes to the Skies in Drones.
‘Among several Pi-based academic UAV projects is an Autonomous Quadcopter from the UK’s University of Warwick. Sometimes, the Pi is used as an accessory, as in the case of Australia-based H2joe’s search and rescue drone, which integrates the Pi camera.’
Linux is an open-source operating system used by millions of people all over the world, and is the operating system that the Raspberry Pi uses. We are using the Raspberry Pi to capture and process images of the search area to find the lost hiker, and then upload those images to a share drive.
