Hello everyone! I'm Muhammad Waqas, student of Mechatronics Engineering from Islamabad, Pakistan. We're doing a project on UAVs and we need to make a flight controller board. So my question is pretty simple, can Raspberry Pi be used as a Flight Controller? How complex it is to code a flight controller? And is there an easy method to develop a flight controller of our own?
Hello everyone! We are Erle Robotics, a young robotics company, and we want to show you the autopilot shield we´ve developed for the Raspberry Pi family. It is called the PXFmini and it is an open autopilot daughter-board for the Raspberry Pi Zero / W. Here you've some pictures: This board allows you to create a ready-to-fly autopilot with support for Dronecode’s APM flight stack. This little board weighs only 15 grams and embeds all the power electronics necessary to comply with most of the existing components for drones through its I2C and UART port. It has 8PWM servo output channels and a PPMSUM input. PXFmini includes: 3 axes gravity sensor 3 axes gyroscope 3 axes digital compass pressure sensor temperature sensor ADC for battery sensing In order to improve the user's experience we work side by side with amazing open source communities to provide support for the de facto standard platforms for drones: the popular APM and PX4 autopilots. The shield has been designed specially for the Raspberry Pi Zero / W but it is also pin-to-pin compatible with the following boards: - Raspberry Pi - Raspberry Pi 2 - Raspberry Pi 3 - Raspberry Pi Zero / W If you want to know more visit us at erlerobotics.com! We have done some interesting projects with this little but powerful board. As an example, a $200 Smart Drone With the Pi Zero: Pi Zero Drone video We will be posting the previous one and more projects soon! Hope you like it!!
Hey everyone, My name is Marcus Johnson and I am from Maryland/DC area. I am a software engineer for Amches, Inc. I currently own a Phantom 3 Advanced drone and I really like it since it combines 2 of my interests which are tech and photography. I'm a digital system hobbyist so I like to do experimentation with Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, etc. Currently, I'm trying to figure out a good way to leverage the power of the drone and use of of my sensor circuits to gather data while airborne. Thanks, Marcus
