Android GCS/PFD (proof of concept)

Posted on July 11, 2010 at 10:00am 8 Comments

I played with an Android phone and UAV Playground and ported some of my GCS/PFD code.


- FlightGear flight simulator is controlled by UAVsim

- UAVsim receives FlightGear telemetry data and sends it to an Android device via Bluetooth

- Android device graphically displays the telemetry data

- Android device uses text to speech to announce telemetry… Continue

UAV inspired by maple seed

Posted on January 7, 2010 at 7:59am 7 Comments

Lockheed Martin has test flown the Samarai prototype UAV monocopter late last year. Its design is inspired by the maple seed and couldn't be more minimalistic.

It's got a 760 mm (30") wingspan, is electrically powered and was built by using off-the-shelf… Continue

Telemetry testing

Posted on October 17, 2009 at 4:12am 8 Comments

I spent some time on the software for the ground control station lately and did some telemetry flights with my UAV Flying Wing.

Nothing special but I thought I'll post this anyway so people know that I'm still alive. The software is a work in progress and I'll… Continue

SimpleSerialization - serial communication for the Arduino/ArduPilot

Posted on June 5, 2009 at 1:30pm 18 Comments

I was searching for a way to exchange data between an Arduino/ArduPilot and a Java application. There are already several solutions to do this but none of them really met my requirements. So I decided to write a library that implements a mechanism called serialization/deserialization. The now called SimpleSerialization library allows you to define a data structure (or object) that will be converted into a stream which then can be sent via a serial… Continue

Hi Jaron. As a Swiss mate, I felt necessary to give you a hello from Fribourg!
Nice flying wing you're developing on.
Since we're not so far geographically, maybe there's some chance organizing some UAV meeting one day somewhere?
Where you're staying?

Hi Jaron and thanks for the information. I'll check that out. Just plain craze that it's 3xmore than in the US!!!
Well not more than in North America! In the meantime I checked it out. It's the same as on RoboShop.ca where it is around 45USD. I'll definitely order that one. Thanks

Jaron, Chris is preparing a shield with mounted sensor which will be around 25USD. Should be in a month or so. I'll certainly want to check that one out before getting another one.

Hi Jaron, im very impressed with you UAV playground and i am trying to create something similar with support for Google earth like you have done but i am not sure i can use because of the network link refresh interval. Have you found a way to make it refresh faster than 1hz? or is that just a limit imposed by google earth?

Hi jaron, I was interested in the camera that you used in your flying wing!! I can not seem to find the same one any where i look, can you send me a link or tell me where you got it or something

You are right, it is not available in the U.S. yet. I was afraid of that when I couldn't find it when i was looking it up. Now it looks like I will have to pick up one when I'm abroad or import one or maybe even wait for it to come out in the U.S. Thanx for the help. UAV playground looks cool, i hope to try it out soon!

Hi Jaron!
Im new here and I saw your UAV Playground. Im really interesting in your project because you used Java. I want to make may ground station in Java. I have same skills programs with Java, but I never make any aplication with animation, like a horizontal artificial and telemetry... Can you said how Can I begin? Read some book, some specific site?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jaron!
I'm sorry for being so annoying...

I tried to find something in internet, but I dont know where or how can I search...
I took some book (game development in java), but I think, Im going in wrong way...
Can you send to me some site?

Really thanks!

Thanks a lot man!
Im studying Java 2D and after I will take a look a processing V1.0 more carefuly...
