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

We have done some interesting projects with this little but powerful board. As an example, a  $200 Smart Drone With the Pi Zero:

We will be posting the previous one and more projects soon! Hope you like it!!
