Here we introduce a novel method of controlling drones via Telegram.
Using this feature, a user will be able to control a drone from virtually anywhere in the world with the help of an internet connection and Telegram application.
There are various drone control methodologies such as Radio, GCS, Gesture, Voice, Joystick, PC, FPV, and Autonomous.
But none of them allows a common person or a newcomer to fly a drone with ease.
Also, all the above method mostly requires that the person controlling the drone needs to be present in the near vicinity of the drone or the ground control station.
What if I tell you that...... Anybody, I mean literally anybody in the world, with no coding or prior drone skills whatsoever could control a drone from the comfort of his home,
without being physically near the drone or using any sophisticated control techniques.
This is the idea on which we have developed our Telegram-controlled drone.
For now, this is just a barebone prototype application and we are exploring the possibility of adding a lot of cool features and functionalities to the Telegram controller.
Stay tuned, and enjoy a ride to find out how we made this possible.
As always, the motivation for this project also raised from the need to implement these different control methods in a low-cost portable and scalable embedded platform.
