The BeaglePilot Project aims to create the first Linux-based autopilot for flying robots using the BeagleBone and the BeagleBone Black as the “hardware blueprint”.
For this purpose the project will focus on integrating ArduPilot (most popular autopilot) in the BeagleBone (Black). The main tasks performed will be userspace drivers development, the Robot Operative System Integration (ROS), web IDE exploration and security assessment.
Getting ArduPilot in the BeagleBone Black¶
Refer to the instructions provided in the article Building (ardupilot) for BeagleBone Black on Linux.
For now BeaglePilot is still in development phase being tested in the following devices:
- BeagleBone Black + PixHawk Fire Cape
- Erle Robot
