"I would go with Pixhawk 2.1 with Edison carrier board, Here GPS and the Edison. If you want a second computer, I would suggest the Odriod XU4 or if you have the budget and room, NVidia TX1. If you need help building your drone let me…"
"The mot powerful companion computer hardware solution at the moment is without a doubt the Jetson TX2. But the easier to develop for is probably the Intel Edison, since you can prototype actual run-time algorithms on a normal desktop computer."
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…"
"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."
"Ahmed,Great piece of theoretical concept. I would take the following approach before spending money into drone hardware cameras etc. hardware.1. The entire detection concept outlined in the document first have to be written, tested on a local…"
"Image processing is a very broad word. If you can tell us your entire over all objective (Unless its secret) than I and others can suggest few things that will be worth your time.companion boards are a tricky subject. hardware limitations,…"
