Niels Joubert commented on Emlid's blog post Reach: affordable centimeter-level precise RTK GPS on Indiegogo
"Hi guys!
It's exciting to see more work in this area! I've been working with Swift on getting their Piksi RTK receiver integrated into Pixhawk (that patch Randy quoted was mine), and I've got quite a bit of experience flying RTK GPSes on quads by…"

"Ah very interesting! I'm doing research at Stanford on autonomous quadrotors for computer graphics pruposes, which is how I started working part-time for Swift to integrate Piksi and Pixhawk. 

Which quads are you flying?"

"Hi Mark!
What are you using the Piksi-on-Pixhawk for?
We have an integration guide in the works that'll be useful to you. In the meantime, check out the swift navigation forum where several people are working on…"

Niels Joubert commented on Kevin Hester's blog post Introducing Droneshare, the 3DR cloud flight and fleet management service
"Great stuff! This looks just super neat. Could we potentially also import datalog files? I have a ton of those that'd be awesome to get into the system!"

Niels Joubert replied to Michael Duffy's discussion Piksi GPS Working on Arducopter
"Here's an example of the type of positioning Piksi is giving its users! https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/swiftnav-discuss/nMqeRAOgXWg

ArduCopter's localization and control algorithms is tuned to a much much noisier GPS, so at the moment…"

"Hi Michael!

Tridge just pointed me over here, since I'm the guy that's been doing the integration :) I'm a Stanford grad student, not part of 3D Robotics, working part-time for Swift Navigation.

The good news is, you should be able to use Piksi as…"

Niels Joubert commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post APM:Plane 3.0.0 released
"@Guy, thanks man! I'm excited about Piksi too! 
I'm curious what you imagine as your main use case for it?
Here's an early demo of Piksi flying on my IRIS (this is with the prototype RTK driver that is NOT in Plane yet): https://vimeo.com/89681777…"
