Does Aero Platform have Flight Control and IMU Sensor?

Hi,

I'm interested in Intel Aero Platform.

I have a question.

Does it have Flight control and IMU Sensor? Or is it just for onboard computer system?

Do I need a separate flight control like PX4 or something for my drone?

Qualcomm Snapdragon Flight was integrated with flight control and onboard system.

I heard it using PX4 flight SW. I think it means we can build PX4 source code and upload it.

But I couldn't find any information about it.

Do you have any tutorial like 'How to build your own drone with Aero Platform'?

Please let me know it.

Thanks.

Hi Jeyong,

 

 

The Intel® Aero Ready to Fly Drone comes with a pre-programmed flight controller with Dronecode* PX4* software. Currently, we don't have a tutorial on how to build your own drone. More information about this platform such as various tutorials, guides and more detailed documentation will be posted soon.

 

 

Currently, all information on the Aero can be seen through http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/technology-innovation/aerial-technology-overview.html http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/technology-innovation/aerial-technology-overview.html

Does the compute board still have the imu and compass though?

I'm interested in Aero, but have a copter ready to put it on (don't need the rtf) and don't care much for adding extra weight.

Aero compute board doesn't have imu and compass.

You need Flight controller for imu and compass.

If you have GPS, it may have compass. That case you don't need compass on board.

When the Aero compute board was released it had an IMU and compass.

It functioned natively on Linux as a flight controller without an external autopilot. This is fact, not speculation.

The sensors are no longer listed on the data sheet though - I want to know if they have been removed from the compute board, or if this is just a marketing change.
