Abstract:
In our contribution we would like to describe two new aspects of our low-cost mobile communication platform concept: a new hardware communication framework and a new software module for autonomous navigation. The paper is an extension of the ideas proposed in REV2009 and is based on the therein used hardware platform and the proposed monitoring and management software. The proposed platform is based on the Quadrocopter concept and includes additional off-the-shelf parts. This leads to a universal mobile communication platform providing both mobile phone and WiFi access. However, the platform can provide these functions far more quickly than a technician on the ground might be able to. In our paper we present a universal and innovative hardware architecture as well as new software features for navigation and control of our mobile communication platform. We can easily adapt our platform to individual needs which leads to a very flexible and semi-autonomous system.
