Gesture-Controlled Quadcopter System

As UAV technology advances, it is used in an increasing number of applications. For instance, a quadcopter with a camera could be used by the police to survey the inside of a building to avoid a dangerous situation. However, the complexity of the joystick-button controllers requires a long training time. In addition, the joystick-button controller occupies both hands of the operator.

In this project, we will address the problem by designing and building a one-handed gesture-controlled quadcopter. Our design will give police the ability to use one hand for other tasks and an intuitive controller that is easy to learn.

The following figure is the data flow of our overall system.

The final circuit designs for each component are below:
