At the recent LCA'2014 conference in Perth I gave a couple of talks about research projects I'm working on with ardupilot. These show a couple of the things that we are working towards with APM.

The first is a talk on differential GPS which is part of a collaboration between Ben Nizette at ANU and myself.



The second talk is about the research project to run ardupilot directly on embedded Linux boards, which opens up some really interesting possibilities for APM:



These projects are really just a small part of what we are working on, but I thought a few people might be interested in them.

Cheers, Tridge

Have you looked at the UDOO board for the embedded Linux project?

Comment by Andrew Tridgell on January 30, 2014 at 6:50pm

yes, I've seen the udoo but I think the BeagleBoneBlack is a better fit for us right now. Hopefully we will get it working on multiple boards in the future.

Cheers, Tridge

Not sure how this got past me in Perth, but well done. Keep up the good work.

Hi Tridge,

Sounds exciting. I have my BeagleBone Black initialized and already to go.

Watching the aussie linux conf speech made me think about where I first came into contact with APM, it was 1.0. Back then I had to diff the source code for a new release to find out what changed in that particular version.

Today an automated testing, build tool are used. Release notes are published, etc. The whole project has become very professional. 

Thanks a lot for all the hard work everyone is putting into this.
