I am doing my engineering capstone project that involves hexacopter which its main application involve operating indoors. Obviously, this increases the difficulty of controlling it without having GPS. One of the solutions would be developing a program that involves some type of auto-guiding feature using the data from the 2D Lidar or RP LiDAR.
For instance, flying the is down a hallway and having it maintain it in the center of the hallway as it flies forward or backward.
Another feature would be where it flies into a room and scans to determine where the general center location would be located.
Any thoughts, idea, or resources to help with the programming portion of it. We are utilizing a Raspberry Pi 3 and SLAMTEC RP LIDAR A3.
