Current hobby-grade UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles or drones) utilize lower-end onboard microcontrollers for flight control and sensor acquisition. These flight controllers are built upon a range of operating system software, some utilizing a full RTOS, while others use custom bare-metal environments. With higher end SoC (system-on-a-chip) designs such as Intel Edison you can leverage mobile phone grade computing platforms on the UAV itself in conjunction with an existing flight controller. This fusion allows Edison to integrate seamlessly into open source stacks like Dronecode and existing flight controllers like PX4 or ArduPilot. This project will demonstrate how to leverage Intel Edison on a multi-rotor drone.
