Hi everybody, this is my last short tutorial for setting up a Raspberry Pi as Companion PC.
That is easy stuff for experts, but definitely something I would have appreciated when I started.
We setup a Raspberry Pi 3 to be working as a companion PC for your autopilot, running Ardupilot/PX4.
Raspberry Pi is a good starting point, due to the low cost and the great support from the community.
Download Raspbian Lite from here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads...
Otherwise you can chose Ubuntu from here: https://ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/
Connect the board to the Internet with an ethernet cable and plug a monitor and a keyboard. Once ready, login with pi/raspberry and open the raspi-config. Here just activate SSH and then reboot. From here on we can complete the setup on a computer through SSH.
Connect the Raspberry Pi to the autopilot following the details here: http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/raspber...
You need to download dronekit and compile it on the Raspberry Pi, in order to avoid annoying warning message in case you connect with both the companion pc and the ground station.
Excellent work !
Very good work! I would like to ask. Have you ever try to connect RPi3 B+ with the last pixhawk 4?
