uAvionix ADS-B 1090 transceiver on PX4?

Started May 20 0 Replies

Hi All,Can anyone tell me if the uAvionix transceivers work with the PX4 flight stack please?  They are a little expensive to purchase just to try out!  Also, has anyone used them with Mavros?Many…Continue

Teraranger not detected on Pixhawk/Arducopter

I have recently purchased a Teraranger One with the i2c adapter cable.  It's all wired up and configured, but the sonar range on the Mission Planner flight display simply reads 0.Here are the things…Continue

"I've already integrated YOLO 3 into my hexacopter for object detection and have had good results combining that with the D435 depthcam.  I want to do some retraining before blogging it. Your RL work sounds very interesting!"

"That sounds great! I would love to see machine learning posts. I am working with a local university to develop a tutorial on RL + Mocap with the PX4."

"Thanks Charles, my pleasure. I'm planning the next blog on monitoring key variables, then will move on to control, probably using set position commands.  The great thing is that we can then start to integrate a variety of sensors to get…"

Mike Isted commented on Mike Isted's blog post First Flight: Intel Realsense D435 on Jetson TX2 UAV
"The range is superior to both the R200 and the ZR300.  But the ZR may be better at close-up as it has laser projection as well.  The ZR also has it's own IMU.    I am optimistic that the D435 can be used to support…"

Profile Information

About Me:
Mike is Director of Software for Aisymmetrix Ltd. We develop intelligent UAVs and support educational initiatives to bring new talent into the industry.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I was bought up with RC cars and worked on embedded systems in my early IT career. I have always been a proponent of the make revolution and the democratisation of technology. Having children reintroduced me into the world of UAV and I haven't looked back.

My interest is primarily around autonomous control augmenting ground based humanitarian activities. However I have quickly learned that once you go beyond gps 'point and shoot' control, it gets a whole lot more interesting. And that's where my interest lies, just outside of the standard flying envelope, so to speak.
