good morning, I would like to ask about the new features on the 1.6 version of intel aero.

The reason for my question is that I want to know if I can already install the apt because I require it to do a librealsense installation for a vision module that will have the function of detecting a landing target on a drone.

Beforehand thank you very much.

Regards Mario

Hello Mario,

 

 

I will list below the release notes for the 1.6 version of the OS
  • Changed the baud rate of communication between Aero compute board and AeroFC from 460800bps to 921600bps
  • Enabled downward facing camera in camera-streaming-daemon
  • Update Cockpit theme
  • Added aero-optical-flow (check https://github.com/intel-aero/aero-optical-flow https://github.com/intel-aero/aero-optical-flow for more information)
  • Make enumeration of Intel Aero RTF drone cameras consistent
  • Added script to get AeroFC firmware version(aerofc-get-version.py) and added this information to aero-get-version.py
  • Increased the FPS of OV7251 to 75fps and enabled V4L calls to set and get exposure and gains for this camera
  • Fixed and enabled kernel space driver for MCP2515 (CAN controller)
  • Updated PX4 and ArduPilot binaries to latest stable releases:
    • PX 4 1.6.5

Thank you so much Octavian.

Do you know how to install apt on yocto?

Because I can't download a lot repositories on yocto with yum

Thank you

Hello Mario,

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to install the "apt-get" package manager. If you are interested in adding a package manager to your Yocto image, I would encourage to customize your image in order to enable this feature.

Here are some useful links that might be helpful to you:
