"I'm pretty busy at the moment so I am not sure how much code I can contribute. Also, I don't currently have an APM and I don't know what state the MAVLink interface is at. The APM MAVLink interface should be able to use most of the same messages to…"
"First, I wouldn't bother with Player since most if not all of the functionality has been replaced by ROS.
Second, I would suggest working on improving the MAVLink interface to connect the data to ROS. This provides a common interface for the various…"
"The protoboard has a +5v switching regulated power supply.
The power is connected through the power and ground of the servo connector but I am having similar problems when connected next to the ftdi cable. but it seems to work a little better.
After fighting with this for the last few hours, I'm going to ask for some ideas.Right now I am having really bad serial communications problems, often the board just randomly hangs and does nothing. It seems like there is some sort of…
"Ok today I am looking at the servo PWM subsystem...
This afternoon I got the connectors soldered to the ArduPilot and hooked up a scope and it looks like the way the PWM signals are generated is interesting. I went through the source and it looks…"
"The secret to getting this working the easy way is you need PPM compatible PWM signaling.
If you use a decade counter to generate your pwm signal, (like almost every R/C receiver) then you just OR the outputs together with diodes then use one i/o…"
