clover🍀: create autonomous drones easily
Clover is an open source ROS-based framework, providing user-friendly tools to control PX4-powered drones. Clover is available as a ROS package, but is shipped mainly as a preconfigured image for Raspberry Pi. Once you've installed Raspberry Pi on your drone and flashed the image to its microSD card, taking the drone up in the air is a matter of minutes.
COEX Clover Drone is an educational programmable drone kit, suited perfectly for running clover software. The kit is shipped unassembled and includes Pixracer-compatible autopilot running PX4 firmware, Raspberry Pi 4 as a companion computer, a camera for computer vision navigation as well as additional sensors and peripheral devices. Batteries included.
Clover drone is used on a wide range of educational events, including Copter Hack, WorldSkills Drone Operation competition, Autonomous Vehicles Track of NTI Olympics 2016–2020, Quadro Hack 2019 (National University of Science and Technology MISiS), Russian Robot Olympiad (autonomous flights), and others.
