Deploy a Controller Designed in Simulink on Parrot Minidrone

The Simulink® Support Package for Parrot® Minidrones enables you to design controllers in Simulink and deploy it to Parrot Mambo and Parrot Rolling Spider. The support package uses a custom Firmware provided for Parrot Mambo and Parrot Rolling Spider. The custom Firmware enables the execution of the generated code for the controllers in Simulink.

The support package provides controller examples which can be deployed on the Parrot minidrone. This enables the drone to hover and fly. You can design your own controller in Simulink by taking reference from the existing examples. You can use the Monitor and Tune (External Mode) feature to tune the controller gains or change the tunable block parameters while the drone is flying.

The support package also provides the capability to read the image from the downward-facing camera and use this data for navigation.
