Creating classes that represent a drone

We will create the following classes that we will use to represent the different components of a drone:

Class name

Description

HexacopterStatus

This class stores status data for the hexacopter

Hexacopter

This class represents a hexacopter

LightEmittingDiode

This class represents an LED connected to the drone

Altimeter

This class represents the altimeter that measures the current altitude for the drone

Drone

This class represents the drone with its different sensors and actuators

 

In a real-life example, these classes would interact with a library that interacts with sensors and actuators. In order to keep our example simple, we will make calls to time.sleep
