Draft project assignments--please review

[UPDATE: the team leaders should all now be inviting team members as friends and once the invitations are accepted, they'll be invited to the workspaces. If you're on the team, you'll get an alert telling you that you've been added. It will say nonsense about needing to click on unclickable words, but ignore those bugs. Just go to your workspace by clicking on the Workspaces tab and you should see it. I'll be swinging by in each Workspace as I'm added to upload necessary files and give further directions over the next day or two. -chris] Many thanks to all of you have stepped forward in our call for ArduPilot project help! I'm going to set up the projects in the workspaces and give the initial project definitions in the next day or two, but in the meantime I've made some provisional assigments based on expressed preferences. Names with an asterisk in front would be the provisional project lead/managers. If you've volunteered, please review the list and see if you're happy with your assignment. If not, please express your preferred change in the comments. If you're shown as lead and don't want to lead, please comment. Or, if you'd like to lead a project and aren't shown as the lead, comment that too. Finally, if you'd like to add your name to one of these projects, do so in the comments as well. 1) Design a "thermopile replacement" version of ArduIMU: this is a version of the current ArduIMU board with a two-channel DAC and a FMA connector, so it can output voltage to emulate the FMA thermopiles. *Michael Zaffuto Mark Colwell Joe David S David Sprague 2) Design the turn-rate limiter shield hardware and software modification to the ArduPilot code: this is shield that has a one-axis gyro, a differential pressure sensor and a connector for the uBlox GPS. It will duplicate the functions of the UNAV PicoPilot but be better and a lot cheaper. *Jeff Taylor Curt Filipowski Michael Zaffuto Grubi David Sprague Dave_fr 3) Create and maintain a library of airframe.h configuration files *Peter Meister Octane-link 4) Design the hardware for the ArduPilot Mega ground station (with dynamic PID adjustments). *Sarel Wagner Andy Geppert John C Peter Koppendorger (enclosure) Mogly Kyle Corbitt 5) ArduIMU documentation *Andy Geppert John C Michael Octane-link David Sprague 6) Create an autopilot PID tuning guide *Octane-link Mogly 7) Create a Lego Mindstorms compatible version of our MUX/Failsafe. This is just our current board with the addition of a Mindstorms connector and any necessary components for an I2C link. *Christopher Barnes Michael Zaffuto 8) Create a "Using ArduPilot with the Remzibi OSD" guide *HappyKillmore John C Peter Meister 9) Create a ArduStation assembly and usage manual *Chris Anderson John C Octane-link James McGlinn 10) Create a system that can inject telemetry data on the invisible closed caption lines of a video stream and be able to decode it in the other side for the OSD system. *Remzibi David Sprague 11) Contest management *Gary Mortimer Chris Anderson 12) Podcast management *Tim Trueman Chris Anderson 13) Create Lego Mindstorms turn-rate limiter autopilot code (similar to #2 and using #7) *Chris Anderson

    Got it. I'll ping Michael.
  • Developer
    Chris I will not be able to take the lead on this project, please consider Micheal Zaffuto, I will be looking for work /consulting.
  • yes, it works fine. however would be nice to have that integrated directly into the ardustation window.
  • I'm very happy with Jeff as the leader.
  • 3D Robotics

    The ArduStation already supports realtime moving map support with Google Earth. Or did you want something else?
  • the current ardustation does not fit on my screen. so i am working to develop one that fits on m screen. would be cool to get mapping built into it at the same time.
  • 3D Robotics
    Jeff, I'll put you as team leader and if Dave_fr wants to do it, too, perhaps we can have co-leaders.
  • I am looking forward to work with this group.
  • 3D Robotics
    HappyK, you mean modifying the current ArduStation software for ArduPilot Mega? We're not quite ready for that, since ArduPilot Mega doesn't exist yet ;). Or did you mean something else?
  • I'm up for leading team 2 if Dave isn't interested. Let me know.
