About this video

YouTuber, game developer, and aspiring computer scientist Jabrils takes on the IBM Developer Drone Challenge! In part 1, he gets familiar with the hardware — aka, the DJI Tello drone — and looks into visual programming using Node-RED. From there, he defines his project, “Aeroselfie,” and works through his programming checklist:

  • Output to the drone
  • Understand hardware limitations
  • Train the classifier
  • Implement the classifier
  • Refine and re-tune the algorithm

It takes some planning, some tinkering, and some re-thinking. Can Jabrils implement his project? Challenge accepted!
