The Explorer is a rotorcraft.
It is used to test :

  • control loops such as PID and INDI
  • simultaneous datalinks such as Xbee and Wifibroadcast
  • vision algorithm

The aircraft flies an Apogee or a Tawaki autopilot board.
Explorer/PPRZ

The RaspberryPi provides: - a camera link - an additional communication link - an easy way to run computation tasks.

There are two RaspberryPi :
- on board, as a companion board to the autopilot
- on ground, as an interface to the companion board

The RPI Zero and RPI 3B can be used in this aircraft as they provided at least one UART and one USB
Explorer/RaspberryPi

The equipments connected to the autopilot board are :

  • Dshot 4in1 ESC board
  • GPS (D-GPS) Explorer/RTK
  • Xbee
  • Leds
  • Radio control
  • Servo

The equipments connected to the companion board are :

  • Camera
