Bebop


The Parrot Bebop and Parrot Bebop 2 are inexpensive quadcopters that can be controlled using their built-in API commands via a WiFi connection. They include a built-in front-facing HD video camera, as well as a second lower resolution bottom-facing video camera.

API Reference

How to Install

go get -d -u gobot.io/x/gobot/...

How to Use

package main

import (
        "time"

        "gobot.io/x/gobot"
        "gobot.io/x/gobot/platforms/parrot/bebop"
)

func main() {
        bebopAdaptor := bebop.NewAdaptor()
        drone := bebop.NewDriver(bebopAdaptor)

        work := func() {
    drone.HullProtection(true)
                drone.TakeOff()
                gobot.On(drone.Event("flying"), func(data interface{}) {
                        gobot.After(3*time.Second, func() {
                                drone.Land()
                        })
                })
        }

        robot := gobot.NewRobot("drone",
                []gobot.Connection{bebopAdaptor},
                []gobot.Device{drone},
                work,
        )

        robot.Start()
}

How to Connect

By default, the Parrot Bebop is a WiFi access point, so there is no additional work to establish a connection to a single drone, you just connect to it.

Once connected, if you want to stream drone video you can either:

- Use the RTP protocol with an external player such as mplayer or VLC.
- Grab the video frames from the drone's data frames, and work with them directly.
