SLUGS AP: Fully Flight Tested and Open Source

Posted on August 31, 2009 at 12:22am 14 Comments

So after endless hours in the lab I am happy to report success in all fronts of the autopilot and making the GIT repository publicly available. The project's website has been updated to reflect the new hardware version and all the changes in the software. New videos have… Continue

Waypoint tracking is one of the most sought-out features in an autopilot. Essentially it allows the end-user to program (generally via a map or an aerial picture) a path (composed of waypoints) that the UAV is commanded to track. When we started working on SLUGS it was clear that this would be the first high-level feature we would add.

Today I am happy… Continue

Hi!!, right now i’m working on my own imu prototype, but i have some questions about obtaining anlges from the accelerometer, just because in rest “with no movement” i get the angles with the accelerometer, but when i mount this on the airplane de pitch that is the x axis of the accelerometer and is pointing to the nose is changing how could i solve this. i want angles in movement but not accelerations, y have gyros to but when i correct the drift of the gyros with se acc signal the angle takes the value of the acc and is a mess
