Toradex Announce News Update on OpenRelief Project

We're now pleased to hear that 2 airframes - 1 foam Bixler and the other FPV-168 fibreglass - have been safely delivered to Saitama. There they will be assembled and tested by Taichi Furuhashi and others connected to OpenStreetMap Japan at Tokyo University. After which they should then be deployed to Ishinomaki to conduct aerial photography - an activity that forms part of the large-scale remapping effort.

The OpenStreetMap team have a Colibri T20 module and as soon as the necessary tools are functioning as desired this will be connected to a camera and sent up to test the level of vision in the field. Another Colibri T20 module is being used in the integration of OpenCV vision with the autopilot. The project is still awaiting permission from Japanese authorities to use the autopilot, and so until then the airframes will be used as remote controlled photo systems.
