I am a computer science student required to develop a drone for inventory management (barcode scanning) as part of a warehouse management system. The system will require the drone to fly autonomously on a determine pattern as shown, send the video feed to the application for decoding and generate a simple report. The drone to be used is a DJI TELLO Edu ver. One of the problem that I face would be determining the flight pattern algorithm. As I have not taken the Artificial Intelligence subject yet, my knowledge is limited on the particular field. My question would be do I use the library functions provided in Python and hard coding the flight pattern eg: fly up 10cms then 10cms to the left or using specific algorithm for the path planning. I am not considering using SLAM technique as it is too complex for my current level and for achieving the goal of the system. Thank you.
