The autonomous platform was assembled based on the design documents and all the electronics were validated in the lab. Once the system was confirmed to be working the platform was taken out to the ACFR test area on the Marulan farm.

A number of tests were performed and the pixhawk running the arducopter firmware performed as expected.

Preliminary testing of the visual system was started ,but the software integration requires more work and the addition of more failsafes to deal with fail cases
