UAV::Pilot is a Perl library for controlling UAVs. It currently works with the Parrot AR.Drone, with plans to expand to others in the future.

Demo video

The current library supports basic commands, such as takeoff, pitch, roll, yaw, vert speed, and land. All the preprogrammed flight animations are also in place. Navigation data and video are not yet supported–see the ROADMAP file for future plans.

    What happens during an exception?

    That is not scary at all :)

      AR.Drone is actually pretty good at this. If it starts going out of control, it toggles emergency mode and cuts the motors immediately.

      Mind you, I did have a few field repairs on mine from accidents during development.

    This is probably the coolest thing I've seen Perl used for... I'll be dissecting your code and learning from it! Very cool!
