Phenox2

Overview

Phenox 2 is a very compact quadcopter robot, but it implements full sensors and computers required for multi-purpose autonomous mobile robots. On-board FPGA conducts fast image processing,  which enables Phenox2  to control self-position, and to conduct  visual SLAM(Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) in a real time.

Phenox2 can fly very quietly with our designed propellers, and its body is redesigned to be safer and stronger.  So it’s also suitable not only for research, but also educational  materials.

The main difference from  Phenox is that Phenox 2 has a WiFi module. Users can install packages to on-board Linux operating system.

WiFi modules also enable users to operate Phenox 2 as a “Flying Web Server”  by customizing and building C, C++ program using both Phenox APIs  and open source library such as OpenCV and Node.js.

No external SDK is required, because all building materials are already installed to Linux Phenox 2 itself!
