I'm using the Pixhawk 2.1 with Intel Edison. I don't think there are better options regardless of cost. Open-source, Ardupilot or Copter, Intel easy programming approach...

What is the advantage to outfit Pixhawk with  Intel Edison?

The Edison is your onboard computer for processing. The pixhawk alone is only a flight controller.

I am sorry for this question.

What are the examples of processing that will do by Edison?

I suggest dropping in to gitter.im/Ardupilot/VisionProjects and asking the guys in there. For computer vision tasks an odroid xu4 or nvidia tx1/tx2 might be necessary - although it really depends on your setup and specific cv implementation.

Eben,


Have you came across a table that can provide side by side comparison between PixHawk 2.4.8 and Pixhawk 2.1?

At a 10 thousand ft level I only see hardware design differences (better choice of Intel board companion), but are there any unique features that PixHawk 2.1 offers?


Also I have noticed that PixHawk 2 has no serial 3 and 4. So if one wants to conenct:

1. Telmetry
2. OSD (via Serial)
3. Uavionix ADS-B

We will be out of ports..Suggestions?


Thanks

The mot powerful companion computer hardware solution at the moment is without a doubt the Jetson TX2. But the easiest to develop for is probably the Intel Edison, since you can prototype actual run-time algorithms on a normal desktop computer. Just don't expect it to run the latest in computer learning, or any kind of high speed, high resolution dense (motion data for every pixel) optical flow computations etc.
