Flytos for super-basic follow-me application?


Hi all,
I’m trying to design a system to capture videos of bobsled athletes practicing their starting push. My plan is to build a cable camera controlled by a raspberry pi running flytos with computer-vision. The system would travel along on a cable parallel to the track. The computer-vision would provide the information needed to adjust speed and camera angle to keep the subject centered in the frame. I’m wondering if flytos will work for this application or if is it major overkill?

PS Here’s a video that shows the practice facility.


FlytOS is designed to work with drones (flying ones as of now). It provides APIs that abstract basic commands from flight controllers designed for drones (UAVs). In your case you may not get all the APIs that you want. So, FlytOS is not what you really need.
Cool application, btw.
