The LVH AR Drone Toolkit helps LabVIEW and AR Drone hobbyists and developers easily interface with the Parrot AR Drone. This toolkit provides a native LabVIEW implementation of the AR Drone API. With it, programmers can create applications that fully control the AR Drone using a small set of input parameters. Video and navigation data from the drone’s camera and sensors can be displayed or read in as LabVIEW data types. The included examples demonstrate how to fully use the toolkit’s features.

To control the AR Drone, you must connect to its broadcasted WiFi network. Then the AR Drone Toolkit can communicate with the drone using network protocols such as TCP and UDP to send commands as defined in the AR Drone programmer’s guide found on the AR Drone website.

Getting Started: You can find the getting started guide in the LabVIEW Help menu as well as the toolkit’s installation directory. Examples are installed with the toolkit in the LabVIEW examples folder.
