Simulink Support Package for PARROT Minidrones

Design, simulate, and deploy algorithms to fly PARROT Minidrones

Simulink® Support Package for PARROT® Minidrones lets you build and deploy flight control algorithms on PARROT minidrones. You can deploy algorithms wirelessly over Bluetooth®. The algorithms can access onboard sensors—such as the ultrasonic, accelerometer, gyroscope, and air pressure sensors—as well as the downward facing camera.

Simulink add-on tools provide additional capabilities. Aerospace Blockset™ includes an example that makes use of PARROT minidrones. The example lets you model 6-DOF equations of motion and simulate aircraft behavior under various flight and environmental conditions. Simulink Coder™ lets you record flight data on the minidrone and access the C code generated from Simulink models.
