Paparazzi on Pixhawk ??

Hi,

I would like to apologize if this question has been answered already. 

is it possible to run the Paparazzi software on the Pixhawk board?

My thought process is that pixhawk is a board with a bunch of sensors, I can technically use any software i like on it. I could be wrong. 

Some help would be much appreciated

  • Hi Rai,

    As Piotr already said there is currently no complete or official support for the Pixhawk in Paparazzi.

    There is basic support for the px4fmu v2.4 (see https://github.com/paparazzi/paparazzi/pull/1384), but e.g. the SPI driver for the lsm303d is missing, MPU works fine though.

    See https://github.com/paparazzi/paparazzi/blob/master/conf/airframes/u... for a test airframe file.

    Although it isn't complete (and a board file for the IO processor is also missing), it shouldn't be hard to finish this.

    Just needs someone who actually has the hardware and some time to do it ;-)

    Cheers, Felix

    Start adding support for the PX4FMU v2.4x (aka Pixhawk) Basic things were working, including reading the MPU... No SPI driver for the lsm303d yet...
  • You are correct, nothing is really preventing any software to run on the Pixhawk board. Here is the list of all the currently supported boards in Paparazzi UAV: https://github.com/paparazzi/paparazzi/tree/master/conf/boards

    There is some basic support for the px4fmu but no one has added support for Pixhawk yet. Pixhawk has a split architecture with two processors, as it evolved from the px4fmu + px4io. There are some drivers still missing to support the px4io in Paparazzi as far as I know. But if you know how to program it should not be a large hurdle.


    I think no one has done that yet because it is just much easier to use one of the well tested Paparazzi UAV boards like the Lisa/MX, Elle0 or Apogee.

    I hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Piotr
