"Thanks Chris and Adrian; that gives me something to work with.   Has anyone played around with Willow Garage's ROS? If so, how easy is it to extend to a UAV system?"

"That's pretty much APM: it's the only universal autopilot on the market. It supports planes, all sorts of copters (ranging from one blade to eight) cars, boats, simulators, etc. They all share the same libraries but the logic is different…"

"Ok,I don't know of any mature non-modality specific hardware right now but I'll look around. If you find anything else interesting keep us updated. Regards, Nick"

"You can try looking at the MOOS framework developed by MIT and the US Navy. It's currently used for marine vehicles but can conceivably be expanded to include other platforms as well. MOOS-IVP"

"Thanks for the reply Nick. What I meant by "non-modality specific" was that the software system was not designed for a specific type of vehicle, and deployable on a wide range of hardware platforms. That way all vehicle types…"

"Ardupilot is a good starting point. If you haven't flown a rc heli you shouldn't try the quadcopter until you have. I haven't dealt with the Parrot AR drone but I heard its not to hard to fly. The APM board I believe has…"

Existing UAV systems

Context My background is in computer science, specifically computer vision and machine learning, and I have just begun working on a UAV-related project that is in the inception phase. As part of the project, I need to develop a generic vehicle mission system (i.e. not necessarily for UAVs). The details are a little sketchy at this stage, but as a first step I need to survey the existing autonomous vehicle systems that exist. I am interested in learning what are the typical system components,…See More

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am currently undertaking research that involves developing a prototype software system for UAVs. Beyond the project, I am looking at fusing my computer vision and machine learning knowledge with UAV systems to create autonomous and "semi-intelligent" drones (mostly for fun).
