Abstract
This paper discussed a person detection and following quadcopter system based on the color information. This quadcopter system detects the target person based on the color of the person's jacket and follows the person to keep the constant distance. The application of our quadcopter is the indoor navigation system for a visitor. In our system the quadroter is controlled by computer program via Wi-Fi. We use the simple and conventional object detection algorithm of the image processing. In order for the quadcopter to follow the target person, the system calculates the speeds of four rotors based on the position of the person. The advantage of the quadcopter can move up and down the stair. The effectiveness of our system is demonstrated by several performance tests.
