GPS in Intel Aero RTF drone

Hi,

We're working on the Intel Aero RTF drone for the flight control algorithm design and validation.

Here are two questions:

1. if the GPS information(module, performance, etc ) could be provided? I cannot find them online.

2. it's connected with the Aero Flight Controller or the Aero Compute Board?

Thank you very much for your help!

Best regards,

Xiaoxing

Hello Xiaoxing,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.

 

 

 

The GPS module is connected directly to the flight controller. To access the GPS data, you would need to use an API like dronekit or mavlink to get GPS information. We have basic documentation here regarding Python programming: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/04-Autonomous-drone-programming-in-Python https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/04-Autonomous-drone-programming-in-Python

 

You can start there then look at the mavlink or dronekit manual for additional commands/arguments.

 

 

Also all the hardware information regarding the Aero board and the flight controller that is publicly available can be found here:

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Thank you for the replay, Octavian.

It's good to know the method about accessing the GPS data.

However, after reading the pdf document according your link, I don't find the the parameters or performance information about the GPS module.

Would you please inform me about it since we're interested in flight controller design and the position and velocity information will be a concern.

Best regards,

Xiaoxing

Hello Xiaoxing,

 

 

The gps module is designed by Yuneec.

 

You will have to reach out to them for more information.

 

You can find the module here: http://shop.yuneecusa.com/Aero-Drone-GPS-compass-module

 

 

Hope this helps.
