Parrot AR.Drone Controlled with Head Movement Using Oculus Rift: OculusDrone

by Lambert Varias

Last year we saw a drone camera system that streamed live 3D video that can be viewed through the Oculus Rift headset. Diego Araos wrote a program that not only lets you use the Rift to view the feed from a Parrot AR.Drone 2’s camera, it also uses control the drone through the headset.

Diego’s program OculusDrone taps into the Rift’s head tracking feature to control the AR.Drone 2 remotely. However, you need to use a keyboard command to order the AR.Drone to takeoff  (Enter) and land (Escape).

Zip to GitHub to download OculusDrone.
