Is Flight Controller hardware available in Intel Aero Compute Board?

Jump to solution

Hi,

From the link below, I understand that Intel Ready to Fly kit comes with Integrated Intel Aero Flight Controller hardware.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/aero/drone-dev-kit Intel® Aero Ready to Fly Drone | Intel® Software - i.e. Aero compute board itself has Flight Controller hardware component.

However, the below link of "Intel Aero Compute Board" does not talk about Intel Aero Flight Controller Hardware. It just focuses on computation unit.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/aero/dev-kit Intel® Aero Compute Board | Intel® Software

I have "Intel Aero Compute Board" only with me for my research. So I wanted to explore the possibility of "Flying part" with the "Intel Aero Compute Board".

I have also come across couple of related question posted and discussed here previously on the same subject.

https://communities.intel.com/thread/113310 https://communities.intel.com/thread/113310

But I get no clear input whether it is supported or not. Please clarify if "Intel Aero Compute Board" has an integrated "Flight Controller Hardware" and supporting flight S/W to make it fly.

I am waiting for your response.

Thanks.

Hi VNMdu,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us.

 

 

I believe the response in this thread: https://communities.intel.com/thread/111033 https://communities.intel.com/thread/111033 (which you've already mentioned) explains your main question.

 

The Intel Aero Compute Board has an integrated Flight Controller Hardware but currently there's no software available for it. We're working to have it available soon, however, there's no specific date for when it'll be released.

 

 

Let us know if this answers your questions.

 

 

Regards,

 

-Sergio

Thanks for the response.

So the only option left is to connect Aero Compute Board to Pixhawk Controller to make it fly.

Eagerly waiting for the Flight Controlloer S/W for Intel Compute Board.

Hi VNMdu,

 

 

Yes, connecting the Aero Compute Board to the Pixhawk Flight Controller is an option you can try. You can see more about this here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/drones/development-drones/000023093.html

 

Don't hesitate to contact us again if help is needed.
