Ardupilot Ground Station 2.6.4 A&B New Look



Hi All,



Been hanging around here for quite a while now and gleaning as much information as i can, maybe its time to give something back.



One of the biggest problems we found was that when in the field, its hard to get all the information where you need it, re-sizing all the windows, if you touch the pad, you can lose the window you want, always the GS, hard to find the pointer to bring it back, when you have one eye on the… Continue

New Confiq. Tool: Now supports up to 48 waypoints!



Finally i figure out the problem that was limiting the number of waypoints on ArduPilot. The issue was in several parts (Confiq. tool, Ardupilot code and Atmega328 fuse bits). Anyway is ready (i guess) and you can download the Confiq. Tool from here:…

Ardupilot roll functional flow diagram

I'm installing Ardupilot in the 6 foot wingspan electric Telemaster. As this is a significantly different airplane than the Easy Star I want to proceed slowly and carefully. If I can I am going to adjust and confirm PID settings, etc, one function (roll, climb and speed) at a time, starting with roll. I decided I needed to have a good idea how the roll software is implemented in Jordi's and Chris' marvellous software. So I embarked on developing the functional flow diagram shown here. It is… Continue

ArduPilot Config Tool Fixed!





After reading several posts from our community describing the issues involved with the ArduPilot confiq. Tool, I guess I’ve spotted (with your help) all the possible problems. Is not just one issue, is a combination between hardware, drivers, settings and software problems. You… Continue

Using the G1 as GPS provider & telemetry for logging or transmitting to ground station

We are getting started with ArduPilot and a R/C car to slowly warm up to the autonomous stuff and getting acquainted with ArduPilot. So to keep costs low, we will use my rooted T-Mobile G1 to provide GPS coordinates, accelerometer data, to make a movie, transmit over WiFi or GPRS/UMTS etc. Because I'm lazy I'll just cross-post from xda-developers. The beauty of it is that the serial output from… Continue

ArduPilot 2.2 Officially Released!

And it has big changes, including;



-The support of the protocols Sirf III, NMEA and UBX.

-Separated header file to easily setup multiple airframes (instructions inside the zip files).

-Compatible only with ArduShield (battery voltage, pressure sensor and GPS auto shutdown).

-And many more minor fixes.



The new GroundStation 2 and ArduPilot 2.2.2 can be download from here:…

ArduPilot Shield Power Divider Theory



Today i started to write the theory+tutorial of Ardupilot and Ardupilot Shield. This is the first text. I will try to release more texts describing all the stuff involved in this little baby. My goal at the end is to join all the papers and make the mega manual, very well edited and revised for… Continue

ArduPilot Shields Arrived!





Yeah! Finally arrived by Fedex Saturday. Otherwise will be impossible to have them ready for this Monday. Also came with them another 50 pressure sensors, so that means i will have enough for the release.



BTW, this red pcb's are "Special Edition", the next batch will be traditional… Continue

ArduPilot: New Attiny FailSafe Firmware V1.6, now with RTL in case of R/C signal loss (Beta)



The latest ArduPilot Fail Safe firmware V1.6 includes a state of the art system to detected if we have glitches or bad signal, triggering the RTL and avoiding undesired "Remote Resets".



How it works?



Well, the first part is just a low pass filter that works only when switching… Continue

Ardupilot Utility Beta 3 Released Now Supports Atmega328!



Finally! took me some time fix this. But for some reason the new bootloader of the Atmega328 is running at 57600bps (Hoo! that means the uploading time is a lot shorter compared with AT168), so i had to add the option to select between atmega168 and atmega328 as is illustrated in the picture… Continue

A blog of my experiences with ArduPilot



Having messed around with RC craft for the last 20 years or so and having built and flown all kinds of 'craft' from 1/4 scale to 28g (1oz) planes - heli's, boats and cars too, I thought the ArduPilot project seemed a interesting new avenue to try.



Started on my AP (ArduPilot) project with the arrival of my Arduino168 board, wasn't sure I wanted to commit a plane yet so tried it in an RC car. ArduPilot board /EM406 GPS, v1.0 software,… Continue

Pan and tilt camera with basic headtracking and camera shutter based on Nunchuck, Arduino, and Xbee Pro 868

This is finally the post for my headtracking system. I still have some tweaking ahead, but here is the present situation.



It is based on following components:

- Arduino compatible board (I use a spare ArduPilot board) in the airframe

- Arduino compatible board on the ground (I use a Arduino Pro Mini from Sparkfun)…

My Ardupilot v2.0 code mod's

After the 1st test flight and seeing the plane wobble too much ive edited the code to make the following changes...

Original code

#define roll_P .8 //roll PID proportional

Rudder to sensitive



1st test

#define roll_P .5 //roll PID proportional

No wobble at all but wont turn...



2nd test

#define roll_P .65 //roll PID proportional

Still too sensitive but much better then .8 & seems to turn with… Continue

Reloading the Arduino bootloader

If at any point you've managed to crash the ArduPilot code so badly that you've nuked the bootloader, don't worry: you can reload it. You'll need an AVR programmer.



The best way to reload the bootloader is with the Arduino IDE, which is pretty straightforward. Just plug in your AVR programmer and select Burn Bootloader/ w/ AVRISP mk II. If you've already loaded AVR Studio, you may get an error… Continue
