Ricardo Nascimento replied to Lucas Cox's discussion GPS spoofing-what exactly is ardupilot looking for?
"Well I'm having the same problem you did actually. I've got the coordinates of my system converted to GGA, RMC and VTG sentences. I'm trying to send them usb to serial so it's a little different from your approach. I've set…"

"Yeah but it will require a lot of work.  I dont know if I can do the communication between the Android and the APM board without the Arduino ADK. Do you know if that is possible? "

Master Thesis On Developing a "Drone your Phone" system that boosts Quadcopter brain with an Android.

Hey there,I am developing an autonomous quadcopter with full on-board processing for indoor use cases so GPS is not an option for localization. The Quadcopter is a 3DR Robotics' Arducopter. At this moment it has a APM 2.5 board, external sensors (4 IR, 1 Ultrasonic, Optical Flow Kit) and a 4000mAh 3S 30C Lipo Pack. I am now interested in the implement of an Android Galaxy S5 for the Image Processing and Navigation part, leaving the control of the Quadcopter to the IMU of the APM 2.5…See More
