Hardware overview
Hardware Overview

  • Autopilot Control Board- Serves as common platform for other components and has autopilot code and flight plans

  • Battery- Powers the board and servos as well as motor

  • Modem/Antenna- Facilitate communications

  • Ground Control Station- Used to control UAV midflight

  • GPS- Used for altitidue and positioning to waypoints

  • IR Sensors- Determines control movements

  • Motor and Controller- Manages the motor functioning

  • Servos- Adjust control surfaces


Autopilot control board tiny
Autopilot Control Board (Tiny)

  • The main control board is the Tiny v2.11is the brain of the UAV and controls:

    • Servos (via Pulse-pulse-modulation)

    • Infrared sensors

    • GPS

    • Any applicable payload (CAM)

  • The autopilot is released by and updated by the Paparazzi development team

Payload
Payload

  • We never officially implemented a payload, though this would not require extensive work

  • Ostensibly, we would have added a camera to feed back images or video over the modem

  • Due to data transmission rate limitations (9600 baudrate) any video taken would be of very low quality, though images could certainly be sent at a decent frequency

  • Payload would likely be placed on the side of the modem transmitter beneath and partially embedded in a wing
