What is UAV?

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), also known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. A key feature of UAV is its autonomy, meaning that no pilot intervention since take off required. The variety of UAV applications are mainly focused on aerial photography, videography and monitoring. Electronics and software make this possible - here comes SmartAP Autopilot.

What is SmartAP?

SmartAP Autopilot is the high-level flight control system for multirotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles with the capability of fully autonomous flight including take off, waypoints flight and landing. The hardware core is powered by STM32F4 microcontroller from STMicroelectronics, 9-axis Inertial Measurement Unit and the latest GPS/GLONASS receiver from UBlox providing outstanding flight precision. SmartAP has its own Configuration and Mission Planning software called SmartAP GCS. The system supports any type of multirotor UAV with highest navigation and control accuracy. SmartAP Autopilot was developed using the latest electronic components available at the moment, which allowed us to achieve such amazing results!
