"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 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…"

"Isn't that always how it is lol.  Did you get the SITL and HITL setup though? I just posted here:  http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/sensor-fusion-for-ardupilot-academic-research"

"Hi Caleb, 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."

"So your boat will go sail from Dover to Calais and then you just leave it there?"

"That looks really neat! Liked it especially because of the IBM ThinkPad keyboard. I might steal your idea and use a similar keyboard on my GCS someday. Thanks for sharing"

ArduPilot SITL and HITL for Research!

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

About Me:
Hello!

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.
Hometown:
Sheffield
