Hello,I've been trying to set up a control system test bench. Basically, I use to study the impact of data filtering algorithms on the control of fixed-wing drones. It occurred to me that I could…Continue
"The problem isn't that we can't use these simulators. If you read through the chat logs on Gitter, you'll see that the problem is more with the timing issue ruining things for us.
For the hobbyist, just about any simulator will do.…"
"I have had some set backs and complications but nearing the end of the first year. Not very much far ahead into my research myself although hoping to make some good progress real soon. I''ll email you and maybe we can share such…"
"I did not set it up yet but it can be done in one sitting. There are 2 major obstacles though. They are:
1. I'll have to set them up on university machines which means that I won't get to do them but will have to write to the IT people…"
"It looks like we are both researching and trying to learn about very similar things. I read your comment on my post and it seems like you were looking for the answers to some of the issues I've discussed there. We should stay in touch!
What I've learned so far is that things aren't as simple as they seem. There are some issues involving mismatch of timing between the simulator (X-Plane) and the controller (SITL or HITL ArduPilot). What are you working on?"
"I do not have the answers to your questions, but I am interested in hearing the answers. I am working on a project that would benefit from these details. I'll let you know if I get any details from elsewhere."
Hello,I've been trying to set up a control system test bench. Basically, I use to study the impact of data filtering algorithms on the control of fixed-wing drones. It occurred to me that I could utilize the SITL and HITL features of the ArduPilot project.The plan is to first use X-Plane 11 to simulate the aircraft and then export the data from X-Plane to Matlab and process the data and then feed that to ArduPilot. A bit like this:…See More
I've previously completed my MEng Aerospace Engineering degree and presenting pursuing a PhD program. In case you are wondering, the answer is yes! I am working with drones in a way. To be precise, controlling them better.
I've realized that there's a lot to learn for me to realize my dreams and one good way of doing it is to join a community like this and see if I can, at the very least, get some help, if not help others.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Interested in fixed wing drones and autopilot systems.
