About Me:

I'm a software engineering major and wireless engineering dual major at Auburn University in Auburn, Al. I am currently about to finish up my private pilots license and love being in the air! I also develop iOS apps and have one app in the App Store and hoping to have many more! Overall, I love technology and the capabilities it has!!

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I have always been interested in flight and AI so UAV's are a perfect match!

"There are quite a few reasons. First, I can run c/c++ code inline with Obj-C, making it very easy to implement Mavlink without a wrapper. Also, I want to be able to use bluetooth 4.0 in order to communicate with the xbee. Finally, native apps are…"

I've been wanting to make a GCS for my iPhone for awhile now but finally got the time to start working on it! The GUI is very very basic as of now, with only an attitude indictor that displays only roll. I'm concentrating on cleaning up the mavlink…

So, I'm developing a ground station for iOS devices (iPhone/iPad) and after making a lot of progress, I came upon a major stumbling block. I can not wrap my head around how the mavlink protocol works. The iOS side of the project is easy but i'm…

"Well, no replies but I have made a ton of progress! I wrote a simple app that allows me to send data over serial and it is working beautifully! Next step is to figure out how to send commands over the xbee to the ArduPilot"

A little know fact is that the iPhone can indeed send/recieve serial data through the dock connector(jail broken of course). My idea is to interface the iPhone with an xbee and have commands that can be executed with a tap of a button. Eventually…
