What is UAV?

An 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. In other words, meaning that no pilot intervention since take off required.
General applications of small UAVs are:
  • Aerial photography
  • Aerial Videography
  • Landscape Monitoring

Why SmartAP?

Contemporary market offers a variety of autopilots for UAV in the affordable price range. Rapid development of electronics allows expanding functional capabilities and features of flight controllers, therefore making existing ones obsolete.
SmartAP autopilot was developed using the latest electronic components available at the moment, which allows including maximum functionality in minimum size.

For what?

The hardware is universal in application for both fixed wing and multirotor UAVs, however, the emphasis is done on multicopters. The autopilot is being developed for commercial use because of its competitive price, as well as for research applications due to its powerful ARM based processor and support of SD card for logging high volumes of flight data.

What's inside?

Specifications of the autopilot:
  • PCB size 60x40mm, (4 layers)
  • Weight 16g
  • 168MHz STM32 ARM Cortex M4 microcontroller
  • USB Firmware update
  • FPU (Floating Point Unit)
  • 6 PWM inputs, 6 PWM outputs
  • IMU - Invensense MPU-6050 / MPU-9150
  • Magnetometer - HMC5883L
  • Pressure sensor - MS5611-01BA03
  • UART port for wireless telemetry connection (e.g. Xbee)
  • MicroSD card slot for flight data logging
  • GPS port
  • Buzzer
  • External bright statusLED port
  • Sonar port
  • External magnetometer port
  • Airspeed sensor port

What is SmartAP?

Along with ordinary functions such as stabilization, altitude hold, GPS position hold, and waypoint flight modes itís also planned to add a special simplified manual control mode. Implementation of adaptive control algorithms is also planned. Moreover, some interesting features, which no one of existing autopilots has today, are being implemented in SmartAP.

How to communicate?

QGroundControl station is primary GCS for SmartAP Autopilot.

MAVLink is general protocol for SmartAP communication.
