Purchasing Other Items.

I am about to purchase the aero board for a project I am working on, can anyone let me know if any other items are needed to connect the board to my computer and the flight controller of the drone. BTW I am planning on using a Naza V2 if that helps. Thanks!

Hi AymanSaleh1232,

Thanks for your interest in the Intel Aero Platform.

I'm glad to hear you want to acquire the Intel Aero. In here you can find the get started guide were you can find all the necessary items to connect to your PC (https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/25/d5/Intel-Aero-Compute-Board-Getting-Starte... https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/25/d5/Intel-Aero-Compute-Board-Getting-Starte... ). Regarding the flight controller, I will investigate more about this, as soon as I have some information available I will contact you.

I hope you have a nice day.

Best Regards,

 

-Jose.

How involved in terms of the programming skill will be needed to set up the board. I know it runs linux but will i need a high level of programming to get the board started?

In my opinion domain knowledge(Yocto linux and Flight controller) is more important than programming skill when you start with it.

The naza V2 does support https://www.ugcs.com/ Ground Station Software | UgCS PC Mission Planning . And all i really want to do is use the R200 along with the aero board to send footage back from the camera to my ground station.

Do you think that connecting the board to the naza in some way will allow me to transmit data from the R200 back to my ground station,

Yep. Usually using by WiFi you can connect Aero board to ground station.

You're right. UgCS supports Naza V2.

I'm unfamiliar with UgCS but it looks cool!

If you do not mind, how can you transfer wifi data to be able to view what the camera is seeing in real time?

Actually I just start Aero Platform and RealSense.

So I can just tell you how to plan to implement what you do.

I recommend how 3DR Solo did.

You give fixed ip address for Aero board and your ground station. (You may need WiFi AP or setup one of them as AP.)

Now you program it using tcp or udp.

RealSense SDK gives you some interface for taking frame in real time.

Aero board which extracts a frame at given time can send it to ground station by TCP or UDP.

So, can the aero board also process 3d imaging?

Aero board supports librealsense

Image processing depends on librealsense spec. .

For more details check out below site.

One more,

I thinks gstreamer is the most popular opensource for realtime video stream.

3DR Solo and QGroundStation also use gstreamer for video stream.

I think Naza V2 is not a good idea. Because it doesn't support mavlink. (http://qgroundcontrol.org/mavlink/start MAVLink Micro Air Vehicle Communication Protocol - QGroundControl GCS )

Aero board is a kind of onboard system and linux machine(officially Yocto linux). So you can develop SW on Aero board.

Your flight controller should provide some interfaces for communication.

I recommend Pixhawk flight controller.

Hi guys,

AymanSaleh1232 I appreciate your patience. As I answer in your other thread we are still working on the documentation and should be available in the next few weeks. These documents will explain how to electrically connect any external flight controller using a serial interface thorough the Aero Console UART and uploading the FPGA configuration.

Thanks Jeyong for all the information provided so far, As2399 do you have any more technical questions regarding the Intel Aero?

I hope you all have a nice day.

Best Regards,

 

-Jose.
