So how does it work?

It’s simple! If you have a PiHawk drone and you complete one of the projects below, you will be rewarded with the cash bounty!

To successfully claim your bounty, you will need to satisfy the following criteria:

    • Accomplish the project with the PiHawk (unless stated otherwise)
    • Create a 5 to 30 minute detailed video on how you accomplished the project bounty

Bounty videos should include the following:

      • Walking through any dependency downloads and software versions you used
      • Walking through any extra hardware required to accomplish the project not in the PiHawk drone kit
      • Successful demonstration of the project on the video
      • Link to the PiHawk drone kit in the YouTube video description

Email us at caleberg@dojofordrones.com if you have any questions or if you are applying to claim a bounty! We are also accepting custom project bounties if you have a project idea not listed below- just reach out to us!

You will be competing against myself and other Drone Dojo members. Good luck!!!

Project Bounties

Drone Swarming

Using two or more drones, with at least one being a PiHawk, demonstrate a coordinated mission with the drones operating in unison. Potential missions could be light shows, coordinated heavy object lifting, or coordinated structure building. Check with us to confirm your idea is bounty eligible. 

Claimed By: Open
Bounty: $200

AI or Object Recognition

Demonstrate an AI or Object Recognition autonomous mission to claim this bounty. Example mission could be hand movement based control of the drone via camera sensing. Unleash your creativity- check with us to confirm it is bounty eligible. 

 

Claimed By: Open Bounty: $100

4G LTE Drone

Conventional drone internet connectivity is limited to local WiFi range. To claim this bounty, install a 4G LTE module to the PiHawk to be able to monitor and control the drone from any distance.

Bounty: $100

360° Obstacle Avoidance

Demonstrate obstacle avoidance capabilities from all directions, not just one dimension. You’ll likely need a spinning Lidar sensor, or a series of ~eight 1D rangefinders pointed in all different directions. 

Claimed By: Open Bounty: $100

Autonomous Indoor Flight

GPS isn’t available indoors. Demonstrate an indoor localization system that can be used to replace GPS for indoor autonomous flight. You’ll need more than just Optical Flow so you can correct errors. Potentially look into MarvelMind.

Bounty: $100

ROS Based Control

The Drone Dojo focusing on python dronekit scripting for autonomous missions. With this bounty, demonstrate how you can control the PiHawk drone with ROS (MAVROS) scripting as an alternative. 

Claimed By: Open Bounty: $50

Mobile Hotspot Field Internet

Drone internet connection in the field can be difficult, and it’s even more difficult to find Ad-Hoc capable WiFi dongles. Demonstrate how you can use a Mobile Hotspot to connect your Laptop and Drone instead. This bounty doesn’t require PiHawk

Moving Platform Landing

Demonstrate an autonomous landing of the PiHawk drone onto a moving platform. You will most likely have to incorporate python dronekit scripting, along with precision landing capability. 

Claimed By: Open
Bounty: $50

Drone Fishing

Demonstrate how drones can be used for fishing. An example application could be attaching a bobber line with bate to the PiHawk and dropping it off farther than a normal casting distance. 

Claimed By: Open Bounty: $50

1D Obstacle Avoidance

Obstacle avoidance with a one dimensional Lidar sensor. Demonstrate the installation, software setup, and actual obstacle avoidance on the PiHawk. Flight modes can be manual. 

Claimed By: Open
Bounty: $25

Drone Delivery

Demonstrate the setup and performance of an autonomous drone delivery mission using the PiHawk. Delivery distance doesn’t have to be very far- even ~30 feet will do.

Claimed By: Open Bounty: $25

IR-Lock Precision Landing

Precision landing with the IR-Lock sensors. Demonstrate the installation, setup and actual performance of the PiHawk drone precision landing with IR-Lock. 

Claimed By: Open
Bounty: $25
