ifgicopter Projects

This projects bundles the implementation outcomes of the ifgicopter project.
Several software components have been developed during diploma/master/bachelor thesis.


Sensor Platform Framework

A framework to integrate different (mobile) multi-sensor platform into the Sensor Web.
Currently it features the integration of a Mikrokopter as a data source and the Sensor Bus as an output mechanism.


A communcation library for establishing connections to a Mikrokopter using Java. It is capable of processing incoming raw commands, decoding them (including checksum verification), creating objects from these commands and forwarding it to registered listeners.
Sending of commands to the Mikrokopter is implemented as well.
