One of the more signifigant changes in the updated rules for the UAV Challenge is the requirement to accurately land on a A2-sized target.
This weekend’s R&D testing consisted of testing landing targets with our PtGrey Chameleon camera. Initial ground testing with a A4-sized landing target at 40m was not promising.
We’ll strap our imaging gear to a quadcopter for next weekend and see if we get a better result! Otherwise we’ll need to start looking at alternative cameras.
