"Clever" is an educational constructor set of a programmable quadcopter that consists of popular open source components, and a set of necessary documentation and libraries for working with it.
The kit includes a Pixhawk/Pixracer flight controller with the PX4 flight stack, a Raspberry Pi 3 as a controlling onboard computer, and a camera module for performing flights with the use of computer vision, and a set of various sensors and other peripherals.
The same platform was used for creating many "large" projects of the Copter Express company, for example, drones for autonomous pizza delivery promotion events (Samara, Kazan); a drone for coffee delivery at the Skolkovo Innovation Center, a autonomous quadcopter with charging station for site monitoring and security, winning drones in Robocross-2016, Robocross-2017" competitions, and many others.
