Anti-crash System for Quadcopter with set of sonars

By Radim Hrazdil


This bachelor’s thesis is focused on installing ultrasonic sonars on a quadcopter, connecting them to the Arduino Micro microcontroller and implementing a program for controlling connected sonars. A demonstrational application using ROS framework was designed and implemented. Based on data received from sonars this application detects nearby obstacles and is able to maintain safe distance as well as slow down when getting too close to an obstacle. The design of the collision avoidance system is focused on high frequency of measurements and maximal space coverage
