Developers and resechers around the world are using our platforms for all kinds of research areas. Here we have collected a few guest blog posts to show some examples.
“We use the Crazyflie platform to evaluate our algorithms because the hardware
is robust and the user community has helped make firmware available on which we can base our
-Ellen Cappo, researcher at Carnegie Mellon University
“The Crazyflie is easily obtainable, safe, and (we can certify ourselves) very robust. Moreover, since it is open-source and fully programmable, we were able to easily modify the Crazyflie to fit our needs.”
-Brandon Araki, researcher at MIT
“The ModQuad is propelled by a quadrotor platform. We use the Crazyflie 2.0. The vehicle was chosen because of its agility and scalability. The low-cost and total payload gives us an acceptable scenario for a large number of modules.”
-David Saldaña, researcher at UPenn University
“The Crazyflie is a great platform for research because of its openness and extensibility; additionally, the size allows us to test algorithms on a swarm of robots even in space-limited indoor environments.”
-Wolfgang Hoenig, researcher at University of Southern California
The perfect development tool for your flying application
Prototype your flying application in the comfort of your lab.
Modify or extend the firmware of the quadcopter to access or control your hardware - it is all open source.
The ideal for many areas of research
The platform is designed to be as flexible and versatile as possible to enable the user to explore the area of interest. for instance control algorithms, swarms, path finding, agriculture or failure recovery.
Bring the latest in robotics to your students
The crazyflie is a versatile platform that is made to engage people to learn about robotics and quadcopters.
Help the students learn control algorithms, embedded systems, aeronautics or robotics by verifying their insights on a real quadcopter.
Do it yourself
Love to fly? Like to tinker? Want to modify and explore? Hate limitations and closed systems? The Crazyflie is for you!
