I am working on a project that consists of taking an OEM laser rangefinder and an HD camera with OSD to accurately geolocate objects on the ground by running a series of algorithms. The overal goal…Continue
I have been trying to decipher the protocol I get when connected to my APM 2.5. I originally saw this when I opened up the terminal in Mission Planner to analyze the MAVLink. After that I opened…Continue
I'm wondering if it is possible to use SITL with X-Plane instead of the other sims in the tutorial. I'm awaiting my APM 2.5 and want to try out the APM on a UAV that I created in PlaneMaker. I'm…Continue
I know there have been several threads related to this but I have no found a definitive build log or instruction. I'm designing a UAV and weighing my options for autopilot, telemetry, and OSD.…Continue
I am working on a project to allow us to implement GPS coordinates for the location of the crosshairs of a PTZ camera, other wise known as Geo-pointing. This will essentially give us the LAT/LONG of what we are looking at.
I have found several methods to do this, but I'm looking…Continue
I have a thought to use cellular technology to pipe video and data over a UDP connection. This is nothing, however, I haven't seen a lot of support for the usage of 4G/LTE which allows up to 100mbps speeds. Has anyone ever read up on this pico board? I'ts available from min-box.com. The same place…Continue
I came across this while researching wireless solutions and seems very possible to create a long range WiFi connection between the GCS and aircraft using an onboard micro computer.
These are the specs that the company…Continue
After arriving in Texas, I've talked to several land owners who complain about feral hogs damaging their property. I had a solution that would incorporate thermal imaging with a sUAS platform to track hog movement and patterns during the day and at night. While doing research I came across this little baby,…Continue
