Hello to everyone! We are Erle Robotics, a young startup that makes robotic brains and robots. Today we want to show you our most popular drone, the Erle-Copter! What is the Erle-Copter? A Linux-based smart drone with support for the Robot Operating System. Erle-Copter is a quadcopter for developers that uses the Erle-Brain 3 hardware autopilot and the APM flight stack. In a nutshell, it’s a Linux flying robot kit whose behavior can be extended in the same way you’ll code something in your Desktop Linux machine. It’s ideal for outdoor operations and it has been designed for an extended flight time (about 20 minutes) with a takeoff weight of up to 1 kilogram. Ready to fly! Modular Design Erle-Copter’s design makes it customizable to the point that you can include different modules such as antivibration system, cameras, gimbals, range finders, Electro Permanent Magnets, LIDARs and ALL YOU NEED. Create your own Linux flying device with Erle-Copter! It flyes, OK, and what else? And much more!! You can: 1. Make it follow you (feel like a leader!) 2. Control with your voice (who is the boss now?) 3. Return To Launch feature (return home little one!) 4. Attach a wide variety of sensors (check this examples!) 5. It flips! (Why not to have some fun?) 6. Plan some missions (even with your smartphone!) 7. Take pictures and videos in the waypoints or when you want! 8. And much more! The limit is your imagination! Or skill... ;-) Erle-Copter is offered at a 5% discount with the coupon code “promojun” at our storefront for a limited period! Hope you like it!
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!!
