About Me:

Aerospace engineering graduate from IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. First year out of university, currently working as a Research Assistant in fields related to simulating cooperative missions of MAVs.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I am currently working on building an HILS framework for cooperative missions for multiple MAVs using opensource tools. Also, an amateur UAV enthusiast.

"Xbees in API mode have the benefit of accepting/rejecting packets based on the packet address by themselves, passing only the correctly addressed packets to the autopilot. If you use some other module which cannot do this, then the autopilot would h…"

"Hi! 
I am running your pymavlink HILS with px4. The hils works great in manual and seatbelt mode but nose dives continuously (with its wings level) in AUTO mode.
Lorentz Meier suggested that it might be due to the fact that airspeed scaling is wrong…"

Hi!I am trying to artificially give airspeed voltage to APM AI0 pin using a Digital to Analog converter. The digital values are coming from JSBsim and are converted to voltage in DAC(0 to 2 volts) which is connected to AI 0 pin on APM 2.5.When I use…

"Hi Ernesto!
This guide used ArduPlane, not arducopter. I remember there was a slight 'missmatch' between the 'config.h' files of ArduPlane and ArduCopter. You are right, in your current state the setup will ignore  #definee TELEMETRY_UART2 ENABLED.…"

Bharat Tak replied to Todd Stellanova's discussion HIL setup with APM firmware on PX4FMU?
"I had run APM HITL on PX4IO (probably on FMU standalone too, I don't remember :P). 

First of all, to run APM on px4, do not direct your APM makefile to use the standard px4 firmware, rather, use the diydrone's forked copy of that firmware (this one…"

"check this out. Also, if you are using MAVlink protocol to update stuff(waypoints/gains etc) through your UAV sync program, you'd like to check out MAVproxy interface too."

"@Scott: I used two at the same time for HIL simulation. Instead of using uart0 though i used the usb(they both are muxed internally, so it really doesn't matter which one you use)."

Bharat Tak replied to Christian Lopez's discussion MAVLink connection fails "Getting Params...(sysid 2 compid 1)"
"Routing your xbee data through mavproxy to APM or qGCS would remove your 'MAVLink connection fails "Getting Params...(sysid 2 compid 1)"' error. The thing is, for some reason Misiion Planner does not handle API trash in the MAVlink data well(unlike…"

"After make px4, just do make px4-upload, no you shouldn't have to compile px4fmu directly form firmware directory to run make px4 in ArduPlane folder(you just have to do make configure_px4fmu form firmware directory). Yes, for the IO, you have to co…"

I want to use any channel other than channel 8 for mode switching on PX4. I am running APM2.7 on PX4 and everything is working fine except that my radio receiver PPM signal gives on 7 working channels (verified on MissionPlanner) while channel 8…"

"Hi!
I was able to make and run ArduPlane2.70 on APM2. It also compiled and uploaded successfully on PX4, but I got this error on Nuttx:

"Cool stuff!

Could I get a hint as to how I should go about accessing UART2 on APM2.5 with the HAL library included ? 
In the earlier version with the fastserial library, the port was already initialized and it was a simple matter of using Serial3,…"
