Crazyflie 2.0

A flying development platform

The Crazyflie 2.0 is the second generation of the Crazyflie nano quadcopter, a flying open source development platform invented by Bitcraze. Apart from improved hardware and payload it features a modular design (similar to Arduino shields) which adds new capabilities like a LED-ring, wireless charging, a camera, GPS or a prototype expansion board. This allows to do hardware and software development on an open platform that fits in the palm of your hand. The Crazyflie is running on open source software and hardware. It has been used in different private and academic science and research projects around the world.

This talk will focus on the Crazyflie 2.0's modular design (similar to Arduino), new expansion boards (called "decks"), some interesting research projects where it was used and recent improvements on the software side (e.g. flashing the firmware from a mobile device).
