Clap, snap or shoutout that's all it takes for your drone to take off!!!
What I wanted to do was command my drone to take off either by a snap, clap, or by actually saying drone fly!! For this first i began with choosing a good sound sensor and adjusting its sensitivity as per requirement. I integrated this sound sensor onto PlutoX board using its breakout board. Since the frequency of the generated sound is very high it becomes difficult for the controller to analyze the data detected as it lasts for a very small interval of time I added a low pass filter to sustain the signal long enough to be acted upon.
- Clap to fly
- Speak to fly
PlutoX drone made the project easier.
To open drone experimentation to the world, Drona Aviation is crowdfunding for PlutoX on Indiegogo.

1.GETTING THE HARDWARE READY
Clap sensor need a 5V Input.
Solder a berg strip to Connect the sensor to Breakout board
Connect the Ground and 5V in supply
Connect the Digital Out to any of the ADC pins. (I am using pin 13)
2.GETTING THE SOFTWARE READY
Github link(https://github.com/DronaAviation/PlutoX-Sample-Codes/blob/master/PlutoX-ClapSensor/PlutoPilot.cpp) to read the sensor data
Convert the input data to equivalent voltage
Set some specific threshold, If the sensor data is greater than a threshold ARM the drone and Set a Specific height to take off.
