Centeye Autonomous Nano Drone with 360 Degree Stereo Vision

Centeye Autonomous Nano Drone with 360 Degree Stereo Vision

As part of our efforts to develop practical vision-based flight control, Centeye has developed a new version of our nano drone containing 360 degree vision and obstacle avoidance. The system is built on a modified Crazyflie. Below are pictures and specifications for this system, which we are using for internal work and providing to our partners. The system is operational. New videos will be released in the coming months.
