Hi, So I want to make an autonomous drones with implementation on of some selected SLAM algorithms. I just want the drone to send me images and IMU values for sensor data merging (visual inertial methods). I want to use a pixhawk (the cheaper one) with a raspberry pi/ Asus tinkerBoard for this purpose. I have the following questions:
- How to setup pixhawk (flashed with px4) with a companion computer?
- This page suggests using px4 firmware with a raspberry pi? Does that mean the raspberry pi will be working as a flight controller or I’ll need to connect a px4 based FC?
- What is cheapest board you can suggest me to use for this project? I’ve tried my luck with APM 2.8 but that was a waste of money.
