On October 18, 2017, we managed to complete for a ground robot to make a single trajectory again from the concept show that we have for the drones. However, this time we used the ultrasound indoor positioning system instead of the top camera. Moreover, we also manage to perform the trajectory of a second agent.

On October 11, 2017, we managed to complete, for the first time, for a ground robot to make a single trajectory from the concept show we have for the drones. That is, the x,y, coordinates and the orientation with respect to z, which should be performed by a ground robot. Check out the videos!
On September 27, 2017, we got to fly the amazing curiosity drone produced by Avular for the first time outdoors. We flew it outside and obtained measurements from an ultra-wide band system. We plan to use this drone for the show! Check out the video!
On September 16, 2017, we had the second hackathon at Avular. The night before we had just concluded exporting our software for high-level control, supervisor and collision avoidance to C. The hackathon went quite well and we made progress in several directions. Still, given the progress, which was good but not as fast as needed
Using the Simulink 3D animation toolbox, we have greatly improved our animation. A first look of it can be seen in the video. This is not the final trajectory and we’re still working on the implementation of the lights, but a good start is half the work!
A small impression of what the lights on the drones will look like.
We have made a simple animation of the drone’s trajectory in MATLAB. This trajectory is the one we’ll be using for the Demo which will be held soon and contains simple movements.
Today we received an initial design of the drone we will be using for our show. This design was made by one of our partners: Avular and already looks very promising.
We have received the music from our cooperating DJ Difterbeat! It already sounds amazing, especially for a first version.
The Glow Project has started with brainstorming about the course of the project. Expectations of the project are voiced and the long journey of to-be-FireFly project begins.
