Pixhawk 2.1 Autopilot Flight Controller Intel Edison + GPS GNSS Kit
The latest Pixhawk 2.1 Autopilot flight controller has finally arrived! The long awaited updated module is powerful!
This Kit contains the following items :
With its dual core atom processor the Edison compute module will have loads of processing power for whatever application you decide to use this autopilot for, be it computer vision tasks, or advanced flight algorithms. At the heart of the pixhawk 2 is the cube, which is an isolated and damped high precision, redundant IMU unit to ensure the flight calculations are accurate, and reliable. The intel Edison compute module simply plugs into this pixhawk 2.1 carrier board and provides all of the I/O functionality of the standard Pixhawk 2 carrier board.
Furthermore this kit includes the precision Here GNSS GPS module with large ground plane for accurate and interference free GPS positioning. So you just need to add your own Intel Edison compute module to use this autopilot.
Pixhawk 2 is an advanced autopilot system designed by the ProfiCNC and manufactured by HEX Technology. It features advanced processor and sensor technology from ST Microelectronics® and a NuttX real-time operating system, delivering incredible performance, flexibility, and reliability for controlling any autonomous system.
The pixhawk 2.1 includes a triple redundant IMU with a total of 29 sensors: Furthermore the main IMU is also mounted on a vibration damped system to ensure the sensor readings are accurate.
Both the FMU and IO microcontrollers feature battery-backed real-time clocks and SRAM. The on-board backup battery has capacity sufficient for the intended use of the clock and SRAM, which is to provide storage to permit orderly recovery from unintended power loss or other causes of in-air restarts. The capacitors can also be recharged from the FMU 3.3V rail, however this will only function in the event of software existing to support this feature.
