Generating flight behaviors

 

This rehearsal videos shows how our programmer Sandro Fioravanti is piloting the drone, recording the flight data in LabView and reproducing the flight. In the second part you can see side-to-side comparisons between the piloted and the reproduced flights. Simple flight maneuvers are reproduced almost perfectly, while more complex flight maneuvers show differences in space and time (check the starting mark and the tiles on the floor to compare).

We can generate controlled and semi-autonomous flight behaviors now, through the workflow described above, and at the same time we are facing new exciting challenges: creating and editing a database of flight behaviors; analyzing and minimizing the variations in complex flight maneuvers, and contextualizing these behaviors in our virtual ecology dramaturgically.
