LeQuad quadcopter

The leQuad quadcopter was designed in the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems, EPFL, which makes it easily reconfigurable and repairable. Having very lightweight and rigid frame it has a very good thrust/weight ratio allowing adding many additional components to basic configuration. It’s mostly used with our MoCap system indoors, but may be fitted with GPS sensor for outdoors experiments.

Key features:
  • Custom power distribution board
  • Odroid XU4 onboard companion computer
  • Pixhawk 4 autopilot hardware
  • ROS interface
  • Payload of 500 g
Possible applications:
  • Drone control algorithms development
  • Computer vision drone experiments

Technical specifications

Interface:ROS, MAVSDK
Power supply:4 cell LiPo battery or 12-16V power supply
Weight:~1.2 kg

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
