[Edit 12/31/2015: Note for Pixhawk users that Canon cameras require a 5V pulse to trigger so a voltage step-up from Pixhawk's 3.3V output is required. See compatible cable and link to more instructions here.]
This tutorial will show you how to get your CHDK-enabled camera connected to your ArduPilot Mega (APM) without buying any extra hardware or decoding PWM outputs.…Continue
Following our previous iteration, and after receiving feedback from the community our team is glad to present "blanco" Debian Jessie image from Erle Robotics. This image valid for Erle-Brain 2 chances include:
As a new school year is approaching, we decided to encourage everyone to study more, and we are happy to introduce the educational discounts for all of you who take part in the studying process.
More than 20 universities all around the world use Navio and we are glad to see people working on their degrees using Navio.
Raspberry Pi is a great platform for learning and we believe that Navio makes it the best way to start discovering robotics and…

Hi, Just a quick note to people wanting to run APM Planner 2.0 on the Raspberry Pi 2 and don't want to build it from the source code. Community member Carpy has created a build to download.
It will run on any ARMv7 debian based platform, i.e. Ubuntu or Jessie, it's experimental so please…Continue
The latest release of APM Planner 2.0.18 is out, which has a number of bug fixes and features added.
As someone who came from robotics to the RC side of drones I discovered that there were many things that I found not that well documented. The learning experience over the last 2/3 years taught myself and my team many things thereby a few weeks ago we decided to launch the …Continue

Hi, let me introduce my APM mode switch with LCD display.
The basic idea is from Stefan Gofferje's project, thanks on him for PPM stream code part!!!
My idea was to make something more good-looking thing for…Continue
Great stuff happening at Erle Robotics while we push our Linux autopilot, Erle-Brain, towards deeper and deeper ROS integration.
Here's Alex sharing with you some of the first packages we coded (video):
- PWM: …Continue
This is my fourth article about Andruav. In the past few articles I talked about:
1- What is Andruav then I focused on the telemetry features in Andruav.
2- Andruav as a…Continue
All -- what do you believe is an appropriate response of APM (ArduPlane) to a complete air frame failure?
Over Thanksgiving break, I test flew an Experimental Airlines AXON build (in a remote, rural area). The plane was flying fine with default settings, and I flew from FBWA to RTL to Auto. During the Auto mission the main spar (an oak dowel) failed and the wings collapsed at around 300' AGL. The plane, as you might expect, took a nosedive to the…Continue
As instructional materials designer for the DaVinci Challenge, I need to provide clear and concise guidance on all aspects of building and operating drones including preparing ground control systems. With Microsoft as a sponsor of the DaVinci Challenge, I usually start by encouraging installing Mission Planner or APM Planner 2.0 on Windows, despite the difficult of installing unsigned…Continue
