ArduIMU V3 Magnetometer Calibration???

Started Apr 10, 2013 0 Replies

Hi,So I know that the APM has Magnetometer Calibration(finding the offsets) built into the code but the ArduIMU v3 does not. Does anyone have the link to that snippet of code that calibrates the…Continue

ArduIMU V3 output Error

Hi,I just ordered the ArduIMU and when I try to view it from the arduino serial window it only works for 9 loop refreshes then it displays a line of random characters and then repeats. I believe it…Continue

APM 2 with RVOSD Current sensor?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mike Mandziuk May 28, 2013. 1 Reply

Hi,I was curious how to interface with the RVOSD current sensor. It puts out 12 volts and I dont know how that would work with the APM 2. Im pretty sure the signal is analog but I dont know the…Continue

MavLink Protocol for on board Computer

Hi,I am looking into hosting an external computer/microcontroller on board a copter with an APM. The goal is to provide vision assistance for the sparkfun AVC competition. I have looked into the commands and some arduino Mavlink examples, but I am still struggling with the implementation.The idea is to have the APM run an autonomous mission but if a waypoint is specified(by the user) as a vision assisted waypoint it will look for an object while flying towards it. If an object is detected then…See More

"Had this idea idea a bit a ago. Cool to see someone execute and implement it! Never did enough research to prove its feasibility. An idea for mavlink: You could send the GPS location from the APM(location of the quad), then you could use the…"

"So I am currently trying to merge the original code with the your DMP code. The old code provides support for GPS location, yaw drift correction using COG, and centripetal acceleration correction(all things that rely on GPS). Your code provides the…"

Daniel Nugent commented on Euan Ramsay's blog post Baro drift, and how I got round it.
"They should have sensor add on ports on the usb 3dr radio. That way you could add on things like gps, baro, and imu. It would allow for a better and more advanced ground station interface and overall better control."

ArduIMU V3 code is out of date -- team up to improve it?

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 7:00pm 11 Comments

Hi,

I've seen huge improvements in terms of sensor fusion algorithms implementations into the APM 2.5, but none of those changes have been made to the ArduIMU v3. As a result the arduIMU is EXTREMELY sensitive to vibration and drift. I have taken…

NugePilot: Communication Timing Issue

Hi,

For the past year I have been engineering my own autopilot shield for the Arduino Mega(and unintentionally the Due). I hope to be finished by the time AVC rolls around, but I have run into an issue. I currently an using 3 separate Arduinos(Mega: autopilot, ArduIMU, and Atmega328: fail…
