PixHawk Pioneer

PIX HAWK by Parrot

The above link is about the EMAV 2009 system : PixHawk Pioneer.
This system is made by the EMAV team. This team is from ETH Zurich.
Their system PixHawk Pioneer enables PixHawk to fly autonomously.
This system uses an OMAP 3530 processor, similar to the BeagleBoard.

This team used the OMAP3530 in order to make a bridge between several sensors they are using and between output servos and speed controller. This team is using airspeed sensor, 3D magnetometer, 3D accelerometer, 3D gyro, highspeed USB 2.0, barometric pressure indicator, temperature sensor.
The OMAP3530 processor is used in order to process the input values from these sensors in order to control servo movements and speed controller commands. As a result, PixHawk Pioneer is electronically controlled.
