Crazyflie 2.0: System Architecture

Early on in the Crazyflie 2.0 design we decided on using a double-MCU architecture. The main reason for this was to add Bluetooth low energy (BLE) to the platform to permit new use-cases like controlling the Crazyflie 2.0 directly from a mobile device. It just so happens that Nordic semiconductor some time ago released a chip […]

Last week at Devoxx UK

Like we mentioned a couple of weeks ago we went to Devoxx UK last week exhibiting the Crazyflie. We got a chance to do lots of fun things, like flying the FPV quad in the keynote and also over the exhibition floor. The image is a bit faded, but we had the luck of having […]

Welcome Miguel!

We are glad to announce that we got a reinforcement to our team. His name is Miguel Piteira Gomes and just got out of school where he studied mechanics. Now we can finally do other stuff then electronics and software! Miguel comes from Portugal and will help us out during the summer. We wish him […]

Some crowdfunding campaigns

We are always looking for fun things to hack together using the Crazyflie. The last couple of weeks we contributed to two exciting open hardware campaigns on Indiegogo that we are hoping to get our hands on soon. First up is the VoCore, a coin-sized SoC breakout with WiFi running Linux. Based on the RT5350, it could […]

Flying robots and Devoxx presentation

This week we were planning on recording some FPV videos around the office with a new transmitter that gives us better range. But after battling with our USB capture device for a while we finally gave up. We will have to try to find a better one (that hopefully works in Linux!). But until then here’s two […]

Devoxx UK

Last year we presented the Crazyflie at Devoxx Belgium and last month we got a chance to do it again at Devoxx France (but in french). To complete our Devoxx tour we also accepted an invitation to Devoxx UK. But this time we won’t be presenting, we will only be flying :-). Normally when we speak conferences we hang […]

Things happening in the community

It’s been a while since we summed up things happening in the community so here’s some of the things that are happening. There’s lots of more things, so if you think we are missing something, then post it in the comments below. Ralph has been doing some work on an semi-automatic flip feature in the […]

Off to speak at Devoxx in Paris

This week we are heading off to Paris in France to present our project at Devoxx France. So if you are there and want to listen, then drop by the Ella Fitzgerald room at 10:40. The presentation will be in french and it will of course end with some demos We will also hang around […]

Joining the business incubator Minc

A couple of weeks ago we moved into the Malmö based business incubator Minc. It’s a great chance to get some extra help developing Bitcraze and also to get a chance to meet people from other start-ups. Below is a picture of a bunch of Crazyflies in our lab (i.e the table designated lab). On a […]

Visit to Embedded World and TUM university München.

Last week was a hectic but exiting week for me. First I visited Embedded World in Nürnberg and then made a visit to TUM university in München. I was actually visiting Embedded World because ST Microelectronics contacted us and wondered if we could do a Crazyflie version with the more powerful STM32F3 and use ST […]
