There has been recently news about uses of PX4 (APM/ACM port and James Gopperts post on state estimation control), its time to recap the platform state and to give an overview of the current roadmap. There are a few important hardware highlights:
PX4 as a platform tries to provide more robustness (on the hardware level), more flexibility and…Continue
The next few posts in our tutorial series cover the setup of the PX4 autopilot for flight. The first step is to set up RC and telemetry. Here is a RC calibration video with Mission Planner showing the interoperability (due to MAVLink 1.0) of PX4 and APM.
To make getting started with PX4 a bit easier, we've compiled an installation video for the Windows installer. The setup instructions for Eclipse are also valid for Mac OS and Linux.
Note that toolchain means a packaged selection of…Continue
The PX4 team is pleased to announce early availability of the PX4 autopilot platform, with hardware available immediately from 3D Robotics.
The platform is a low cost, modular, open hardware and software design targeting high-end research, hobby and industrial autopilot applications.
PX4 is an expandable, modular system…Continue
