AUAV V1.2 by Robert Ussery

This is an aerial robot or UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle). It has two modes of operation; autonomous,
and manual. Autonomous navigation is accomplished via a GPS and pressure transducer supplying
information to the main control board. As you can see from the pictures, the control board is very
simple. The picture shows a very early revision. The "brain consists of two BS2SX's networked together.
This project cost about $1000 total, but I received a $400 grant from the Colorado Space Grant
Consortium. I have competed in both regional and state science fairs in Colorado. At the State
level, I received Second place in engineering and $100 in awards.


This is a continuing project, so I may post updates here. Look for a website coming soon...
