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

Software Setup
  • Linux installed blah blah
