Parrot S.L.A.M Dunk: The development kit For Drones & Robotic Platforms

Parrot, has announced an open development kit for the design of advanced applications for autonomous navigation, obstacle avoidance, indoor navigation and 3D mapping for drones and other robotic platforms in environments with multiple barriers and where GPS signals are not available. 

Parrot S.L.A.M. dunk integrates several sensors:

  • A fish-eye stereo camera with a 1500×1500 resolution at 60fps
  • An Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)
  • An ultrasound sensor
  • A magnetometer
  • A barometer

Parrot developed S.L.A.M. dunk to be as easy and user-friendly as possible for developers, researchers, integrators and academics.

Parrot S.L.A.M. dunk can be used for:

  • Prototyping of drones and robotic solutions
  • autonomous navigation of drones and robots
  • 3D mapping
  • Stereo camera and a sensor array (IMU, barometer, magnetometer, ultrasound)

Weighting less than 4.9oz (140g), Parrot S.L.A.M. dunk fits on various types of Linux-based drones and robotic platforms including quadcopters and fixed-wings, rolling robots and articulated arms, with the help of mount kits.
