Wall of Record
Teamed with Martin Mueller, ENAC developed adaptive control algorithms and tested them on the Twinstar aircraft. This video shows a flight test where a wing panel section was separated from the vehicle during autonomous flight.
A video of Antoine Drouin's adaptive control logic demonstrated on his quadrotor, assisted by Gautier Hattenberger.
Utah State University
This video shows the USU OSAM team performing a flight with 2 vehicles. The vehicles are using the follow command with paparazzi where the follower AC is chasing the leader. Tough to see in the video, but a great accomplishment
Another great video of USU OSAM using the leader-follower algorithms with paparazzi. 2 flying wings circling.
Check out the rest of their videos on their YouTube channel here
Colorado State University
A video of their man packable UAV. Give these guys a medal for sticking with it after a crash(see there Youtube channel for the gruesome details.
MAVlab TU Delft University
The MAVlab af the Technical University of Delft has won some Imav (and Emav) competitions whit the paparazzi controlled holiday50. Research on on board vision algorithms is one of the activities in the MAVlab.
MAV for civil use is tested and demonstrated on regular basis:
Christophe has been hard at work integrating IMUs into the paparazzi fixed wing software. When he is not doing that he is designing simple to build electronics that are compatible with Paparazzi, like the YAPA2 and the YAI!
These videos we will group together, but they all show different IMUs being interfaced to a paparazzi board, and to the flight code.
I2C only ASPIRIN IMU on an LPC2148 based autopilot(not this is only running 100Hz)
PPZUAV IMU on LPC2148 based autopilot (Christophe will this work with the STM32 products?)
CHIMU both SPI and UART
XSENS IMU on LPC2148 based autopilot
ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences
The ZHAW uses Paparazzi at their UAV project named UMARS (www.umars.ch). As a part of it sutents develop subsystems specialy for the 25 kg size UAV. Examples developped by ZHAW studnets are: -ArduIMU -AMSYS pressure sensor -In flight swichable speed control loops -Benchmark -AOA-Sensor -Advanced Landing
Here a video of the advanced landing useing a Maxbotix sonar for flare:
Martin has been doing amazing things with Paparazzi since 2004. A few short videos here showing some of the great things he has accomplished through the years. See his YouTube channel for more goodies here
Long onboard video taken from a funjet climbing to 1500m in the Arctic Circle! AMAZING!
A video of Christian landing their funjet on the deck of a ship, this guy has skills.
Short video outlining a fully autonomous flight they did from a bungee launcher
A.J has been focusing mostly on quadrotors in recent years. You can see his adventures in his back yard at his YouTube channel here
A fully autonomous flight using a Booz Hardware suit, Paparazzi rotorcraft code, and a custom NoVa quadrotor frame. The winds were well over 10MPH during this flight.
First flight of the NoVa XL quadrotor frame he makes. Avionics are Lisa/L. This flight was out of the box, no gains were tuned from the rotorcraft default.
David's dedication has given the Paparazzi community a source of hardware. You can follow his YouTube channel here
A short video of David flying a small Swift wing using paparazzi. Great setup
A great video showing some early rotorcraft code on a Booz equipped quadrotor. Notice the wind!
A flight test of Joby's Lisa/L autopilot and Aspirin IMU all running the Paparazzi rotorcraft code
One of the first iterations of Joby's VTOL transitional aircraft. Yes before you ask, this plane really does fly on code that is in the repository.
The Quadshot project developed a new airframe called The Quadshot. Beautiful design and amazing performance, and again, all open source software!
