Updates from Project

Every project answers the following questions in 5min max:

  • What did you work last week?

Avoidance

  • Ground Interaction on avoidance
  • Found a bug in the system, implementation works on simulation.

Flight Testing

  • Last week report available on forums
  • VTOL rate control improvements
    • ordered replacement convergence vehicle for testing.
  • Commander cleanup still testing.
  • FMUv5 performance investigations still open.
  • Action: document UAVCAN as a result of testing setup inconsistencies.
