"Hi SLUGS Team, congratulations. I have been looking at Simulink implementations and the c library provided in your GitHub repository. I also read your dissertation  but I still find some details missing. Aren't you thinking about…"

"Congrats Tj, Very impressive. I am really interested in the radio modem part. Will that appear in the CC article also? Do you have plans on making the schematic/layout and source code available?"

"Great Job, the board looks great. Great news about the IMU temp compensation, but the 500 dollar price on Digikey is steep. Is there support for customizable setups on the IMU?"

"Thanks Wayne. It is much better. On version 1 of SLUGS we were analog gyros, accels and mags. Drift and noise was pretty bad, and the set-reset circuitry of the mags was a royal pain. On this new setup where we have the AD temperature compensated…"

"wow looks much improved over the last version ! It looks like you are useing ADs all in one IMU ? read a lot about it when it was being developed . how do you like it and what do you think are the advantages over a more traditional multi-chip imu…"

So after endless hours in the lab I am happy to report success in all fronts of the autopilot and making the GIT repository publicly available. The project's website has been updated to reflect the new… Continue

Waypoint tracking is one of the most sought-out features in an autopilot. Essentially it allows the end-user to program (generally via a map or an aerial picture) a path (composed of waypoints) that the UAV is commanded to track. When we started working on SLUGS it was clear that this would be the first… Continue

SLUGS Autopilot. Soon to become Open Source.

Posted on January 22, 2009 at 5:13pm 30 Comments

The Santa Cruz Low-cost UAV GNC System (SLUGS) is a high-end UAV Autopilot that is currently under development by the Autonomous Systems Lab at the University of California Santa Cruz. Although not ready for prime time, the project's website shows some significant progress towards a fully functional platform.



The SLUGS autopilot is heavily geared towards research in small to medium sized UAVs.… Continue

Hi!!, right now i’m working on my own imu prototype, but i have some questions about obtaining anlges from the accelerometer, just because in rest “with no movement” i get the angles with the accelerometer, but when i mount this on the airplane de pitch that is the x axis of the accelerometer and is pointing to the nose is changing how could i solve this. i want angles in movement but not accelerations, y have gyros to but when i correct the drift of the gyros with se acc signal the angle takes the value of the acc and is a mess

thks!!!!

Really great stuff, keep up the good work, Any ideas on coastal research applications once the you've got the plane operating smoothly and autonomously?
