One of the most fascinating features of this Parrot AR Drone is its own cameras. The machine features two cameras, one atop along with another in the base, which are of very large value to its operation. There’s hardly another apparatus, even currently in design phase that can rival this gadget in this aspect.
The similitude of both eyes into the human being is equal to the two cameras located on the Parrot AR Drone. The clear difference here is that the cameras on this machine function far past the world of merely sighting. Funny enough, one of the cameras relays video flows back to its controlling apparatus the same way the human eye relates signals to the brain for interpretation. Thus, the gaming world is now saddled with a flying machine that does not only sees, but attempts to stabilize itself as best as you can. Now let us look at this in details.
The Front or Top Camera
Much faster at 60 frames a few seconds, it transmits video flows to the Apple apparatus Controller in a resolution of 176 x 144 pixels. Its wide angle lens takes in views from wide and far, sending back streams of movie that would otherwise be missed by the ordinary eyes. The standard and range of these videos as seen on the I-phone gives the gamer a “pilot in the cockpit” feeling and leads in no small measure to the Augmented Reality desired by the manufacturers of this machine.
The Bottom Camera
In a speed of 15 frames per second, this camera is able to shoot up videos to a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The significant role of this camera is to ascertain the present speed of this machine, transmit that information into in-built sensors which can subsequently assist with the stabilization of this machine while in flight. This is an ongoing process because in-flight stabilization is extremely important to the performance of this quadricopter.
