Transcript of Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 2

Common types in personal scale 'drones'
Atmel AVR, MicroChip PIC, ARM (NXP, TI, STMicro, Freescale, SiLabs, etc)
Custom Silicon...
What is difference between this & Microprocessor?
Common processor is only the CPU, no peripherals
Microcontroller has RAM, ROM, CPU & peripherals
Designed for specific tasks: for this input you get this output
Resources are far less than typical computer
All have their own special development IDE
"Basic Stamp AutoPilot" the grandfather of ArduPilot
Sonar based ground rovers
Very crude by today's standards
Entry level learning for Microcontrollers
'Homework Board" is targeted at 10-15 year age range
Parallax BASIC AutoPilots
Arduino is just an AVR Microcontroller
Paparazzi was one of the first success stories
UAVDB was an early player
Diydrones thermopile plane leveler
"Is the Arduino platform better than the Basic Stamp for UAVs?" - early DiyDrones question
Atmel AVR Autopilots
Pixhawk & PX4FMU
Lots of clones: Naze32, Quanton, etc.
STM32 Autopilots
with Kevin Finisterre of Pillar Technology
Building your Drone ANIM4477.01 Day 2
AHRS - Attitude and heading reference system
Magnetic, Angular Rate, & Gravity are key for Navigation in 3d space!
Optical flow, Therompiles, other exotic sensors.
Other Autopilots?
Sensor Packages
Smarter every day videos!
Still have roll pitch yaw, and throttle!
Multirotor vs traditional fixed wing vs single rotor (feel)
Fixed wing can have a variety of air surface combos
Multirotors can also have a variety of configurations
Nasa 'A Survey of Theoretical and Experemental Coaxial Rotor Aerodynamic Research (Y6 frames)'
Air surfaces
Heavy lift (Y6, H8 & other coaxial redundant types)
Camera platform (GoPro or Point & Shoot, SLR)
FPV - LRS (CCD camera & long range control)
Sensor platform (NDVI infrared)
LOS Acro (Aerobatic)
Mini (FPV, LOS Acro)
Multirotor types
Fatsharks, Ski Goggle mods, etc.
HAM Radio license
5.8ghz, 1.3ghz, etc
RMRC here in town
Warthox - http://vimeo.com/72441236
Warthox again - http://vimeo.com/61127136
Los Acro
Several 3DRobotics powered kick starters
Airdog, Hexo
First? Invented by Multikopter 4 years ago
Used Commercially decades ago
Sport Cam Follow Me
Student Waivers!
Procerus (now owned by Lockheed)
AttoPilot (commercial support)
AutoQuad (expensive)
KK boards (very cheap)
Plenty of others... (Defcon Badge)
