CodeAIR™ - Autonomous Drone with Python and Machine Learning Onboard!

Learn Python and AI Fundamentals

CodeAIR is an incredibly capable flying robotics platform coupled with an easy-to-use Python coding environment in CodeSpace.

Our Fly with Python curriculum begins with students writing their first lines of Python code to light CodeAIR's LEDs. From there, engaging projects (Missions) lead them step-by-step into the world of autonomous drone flight.

Open Hardware Design

CodeAIR is a great introduction to the electronics and software technologies that enable stable quadcopter flight.
