Towards an autonomous pocket drone for indoor navigation

In recent experiments, we were able to show a 40-gram pocket drone flying inside an indoor environment, autonomously, using nothing but a 4-gram stereo-camera. With a new computer vision method, called Edge-FS, the pocket drone can detect obstacles with stereo-vision and calculate its own velocity in real-time, all on-board a STM32F4 microprocessor (168 MHz,196 Kb).
