Known as Parrot S.L.A.M.dunk, it has advanced software applications based on a simultaneous localisation and mapping algorithm.
The kit can be used to create autonomous and obstacle avoidance drones and robots. It is powered by Ubuntu and the Robot Operating System and provides developers a familiar environment to prototype solutions such as autonomous driving and 3D mapping.
Another option is to use the on-board stereo camera and sensors for data gathering.
The Parrot S.L.A.M.dunk weighs 140 grammes and has a NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, a fish-eye stereo camera with a 1500×1500 resolution at 60fps, an inertial-measurement unit, an ultrasound sensor, a magnetometer and a barometer.
It also has an HDMI port and if this is plugged into a monitor a full Ubuntu 14.04 desktop can be obtained. Development can be done within this environment and tested right away.
