ArmQuad Y6 small software improvements



Hi,

in this test I check a new software management of coaxial propellers.

It seems that everything works well, no micro-oscillation





il test riguarda un nuovo algoritmo di gestione delle eliche coassiali e sulla gestione del motore, viene gestito diversamente a seconda se deve aumentare la velocità rispetto a quando riceve il comando di dimuirla.

Pare che tutto funzioni perfettamente l'obiettivo era quello di eliminare piu'… Continue

Multipilot32 - Ardupilot32 Weekly Update #3 First Real Flight





After some months of development this is the first flight of ArduPilot32 platform.

Hardware :

  • Ardupilot32 pre alpha hw.
  • IMU Oilpan.
  • Low Cost (6$) standard PWM ESC.
  • PPM_SUM receiver.
  • Lipo 2200 3S
  • Propeller 10

 

For this flight I using Arducopter 32 NG firmware. This is my porting of original code to Arm 7 Cortex A3 platform. With this micro will be available more power , more…

Multipilot32 - Ardupilot32 Weekly Update #2

Dear Friends,

In this week , I'm working to port APM_ADC , APM_RC , APM_EEPROM , WIRE and other library to Arm Platform .  We' add the support of Radio reciver, gyro and acc sensor that using SPI bus. EEPROM .

We're ready to fly. We need some debug on i2c bus and start to do preflight check.

In the picture you can see my first proto of Quadfox that using Arm Cortex3 Microcontroller instead of AVR 8 bit. So at the end of this week i recived the…

Open Source Brushless Controller ArduESC 1.0A 20 AMP I need help in the project

 

Dear Friends,

two years ago i developed a closed source Brushless Controller. It's based on ATmega 8 and support i2c,PWM,Serial Port. The ESC support until 20 Amp and the electronic is present a shunt resistor to evaluate the quantity of energy that the motor need in realtime.

So now I would to port a Arduino bootloader to this board and develop an  opensoure code for it.

But i need help  for this project ... There're some people that…

Experimental 3D Scene Reconstruction With Kinect



Nicolas Burrus has created uploaded this video where he is experimenting with 3D reconstruction of the scene with freehand Kinect device. When he moves around the Kinect, more and more of the surroundings is captured and reconstructed in 3D. So this means that if we sufficiently move around Kinect in a room, we can get a full 3D reconstruction of the room with all its objects; doing this kind of thing till now would have cost thousands of dollars but now with Kinect its… Continue

Controlling The Humanoid Robot Nao Using Kinect

 

The most natural way to interact with a robot is through gestures and voice commands which is the purpose of this hack. Bener Suay is controlling Nao (the incredibly cute) humanoid robot using Kinect. He gives gesture commands and also makes the robot mimic some of his movements. He also says that another purpose of this hack is to make teaching new tasks to robots easier, even for people with no robotics knowledge and the ultimate aim is to make…

DIY Drones( And Virtualrobotix ) 2011 Product Preview (Chris A. DiyDrones)

 

It's generally considered a bad idea to pre-announce products, but hey, we're an open source community. It's not pre-announcement--it's transparency!

 

We're working on about a dozen new products at the DIY Drones factory. Some of them are with partners, so I'm not free to discuss them until the partners give us the green light. But others I can…
