Multicopter Drone Solutions

•    Motion Planning and Motion Control for Multicopter Drones

Customizing the capture areas based on user needs, the NOKOV Optical 3D Motion Capture System accurately captures the 3D data of a moving object's position and attitude, ultimately achieving drone positional and attitudinal control. Data includes: 3D spatial coordinates (high precision, no latency, various data formats), velocity, acceleration, and other fundamental motion information.

•    Autonomous Obstacle Avoidance and Following for Multicopter Drones

The collected data on the drone's position and attitude are analyzed in real-time and serve as parameters for the drone's motion. 2.3 Algorithmic Validation

•    Algorithmic Validation

NOKOV can provide high-precision drone pose and positioning data as experimental truth values to validate the effectiveness of multicopter drone control algorithms.

NOKOV Optical Motion Capture System Features

•    Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) Motion Capture Data

Collection of 3D spatial XYZ coordinates, Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF), Yaw, Roll, Pitch, Euler Angles, etc., providing a coherent, smooth database for drone pose control and motion planning.

•    Sub-millimeter Data Precision
•    Extensive Secondary Development Interfaces

Data can be transmitted in VRPN format or through an SDK (C++ language) port, enabling communication with software platforms such as ROS, Labview, and Matlab (including Simulink) for further development.

Featured Case Studies

Hexacopter Drone Positioning Research

Northwestern Polytechnical University

The most common outdoor positioning methods for drones are currently GPS or Beidou satellite positioning systems. Due to weather conditions and the instability of satellite positions, outdoor drone positioning experiments require a significant investment of time and human resources, often yielding low returns. The teachers at the Northwestern Polytechnical University's Drone Lab have instead attempted indoor drone positioning research, with NOKOV providing sub-millimeter precision for indoor drone positioning.
