Avionics Anonymous Air Data Computer - Airspeed, Barometer, and Air Temperature¶
The Avionics Anonymous Air Data Computer is tiny, richly-featured Air Data Computer (ADC) for small unmanned airplanes. It includes an MS5611 barometric pressure sensor for 10cm-resolution altitude, a Honeywell RSC-series differential pressure transducer for extremely accurate airspeed, and a thermistor interface with high-resolution convertor for air temperature measurement with better than 1 degree precision. The device interfaces to your autopilot via a robust DroneCAN interface, which provides high reliability connections to peripherals over greater distances than I2C.
The following parameter should be set on the autopilot (and then reboot the autopilot):
- CAN_P1_DRIVER = 1 (to enable the 1st CAN port)
