Autonomous Quadrotor Flight Based On Google’s Project Tango


When I first saw the Project Tango phone from Google announced I knew it had a future in SLAM. Now here’s the first video that I have seen of it in use.

Tango has a depth sensor, motion tracking camera and two Movidius vision processors to create an internal 3D map of its surroundings. Others have sensors have been used to achieve the same but the point of interest here is that the collision detection is happening onboard in real time.

Just how much would I like a Project Tango phone!
