I am working on a project where I want to run some computer vision algorithms (e.g. face recognition) on the live video stream coming from a flying drone.
There are many commercial drones out there that offer video streams, like
But none of them seem to give access to the video feed for real-time processing.
Another idea is to have the drone carry a smartphone, and do the processing on the phone through the phone's camera. Or just use a digital camera and an arduino that are attached to the drone.
Although these ideas are feasible, I would rather access the video-feed of the drone itself. So my question is that are there any drones out there that offer this feature? or can be hacked somehow to achieve this?
