This group is dedicated to the discussion and development of software and information in configuring companion computers, also known as Single Board Computers or SBCs
This will allow configuration to use WiFi, LTE, 3G, ITSM band radios for connectivity to Ground Control Stations and in field computers.
The aim of the group is to provide reference images for popular SBC by ODROID, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, NVIDIA and others.
Topics to discuss will also include how to set up popular web cameras to stream live video to GCS reliably and with low latency.
Information learned will be updated and stored in the ardupilot.com wiki
Hope this helps DIYDroners get past the first hurdles to discover new drones applications using these powerful compute engines that are cheaply available.
This discussion group is not promoting the use of any single vendor or product.
