    I would go with Pixhawk 2.1 with Edison carrier board, Here GPS and the Edison.   If you want a second computer, I would suggest the Odriod XU4 or if you have the budget and room, NVidia TX1.  If you need help building your drone let me know.  

  • Just grab navio2, raspberry pi, raspi cam and 4g!

    How to connect Jetson TX2 to Pixhawk 2.1 and camera

  • Developer

    The mot powerful companion computer hardware solution at the moment is without a doubt the Jetson TX2. But the easiest to develop for is probably the Intel Edison, since you can prototype actual run-time algorithms on a normal desktop computer. Just don't expect it to run the latest in computer learning, or any kind of high speed, high resolution dense (motion data for every pixel) optical flow computations etc.

  • Navio2

  • I suggest dropping in to gitter.im/Ardupilot/VisionProjects and asking the guys in there. For computer vision tasks an odroid xu4 or nvidia tx1/tx2 might be necessary - although it really depends on your setup and specific cv implementation.

    The Edison is your onboard computer for processing. The pixhawk alone is only a flight controller.

    I am sorry for this question.

    What are the examples of processing that will do by Edison?

    What is the advantage to outfit Pixhawk with  Intel Edison?
