BreezeUAV : An open-source autopilot for UAV

BreezeUAV is an autopilot running on Arduino Mega 2560 which allow the user to do some automatic missions or to fly in "semi-automatic" mode with a Joystick. In fact, instead of controlling the surface controls of the airplane, the joystick define the euler angles desired. Then the autopilot, using PID controllers, stabilize the UAV.

I first decide to implement the whole system on a Yak…

BeaglePilot: MAVProxy connection now working

Yesterday at BeaglePilot's weekly meeting we had great progress :):

  • We got readings from the MPU6000 (SPI) and MS5611 (SPI) from the AP_Linux_HAL.
  • We made ArduPlane and ArduCopter work in the BeagleBone (we didn't finish the tests with APMRover2 but i'd guess it…

Arduino-ardupilot IDE updated for Arduino 1.0.5 and avr-gcc 4.8.1

ArduPilot using Arduino 1.0.5 and avr-gcc 4.8.1

I've merged the ardupilot code with the latest Arduino 1.0.5-r2 code (git version which is well on the way to 1.0.6), plus the avr-gcc 4.8.1 from the Arduino 1.5.x development branch.

Net result is the "latest" Arduino version, with ardupilot extensions and a…
