Developer comments

The overall goal is to gain an understanding of the various aspects of UAVs like microcontrollers, simulators and remote controlled model airplanes. Therefore I needed an environment where most of these aspects can be simulated and explored. The evolving result is what I call the UAV Playground.

Main features:

  • Software architecture for interconnecting components through messaging
  • GUI independent support for the implementation of visual components
  • Specific GUI elements for the Processing Development Environment (e.g. joystick, servo, slider, graph)
  • Connection to the FlightGear Flight Simulator to control the simulator and receive flight and GPS data
  • Stabilization through a PID controller for elevator and aileron
  • Waypoint and circling navigation
  • GPS tracking in Google Earth
  • Modular, intuitive and easy to use
