Week 2 Report – 3rd to 9th June

Received the Erle Brain from my mentors. It is a Linux-based autopilot that consists of a BeagleBone Black and a PixHawk Fire cape put together. Thanks to my mentors for the same 🙂

Got APM Planner running on my Arch Linux system. Instructions for the same can be found in my previous post.

The main ardupilot repository, ie https://github.com/diydrones/ardupilot, has undergone changes and the vehicle code is now in the form of .cpp files, instead of the earlier .pde format, and each vehicle now has its own header file.

Support for building from .pde files might be removed from the build system too, and hence it shall be my goal for the next week to incorporate the changes to the existing work.

I also had some issues SSHing into the Erle Brain. Hope to get it sorted out…
