Installing and Configuring BeaglePilot
Installing BeaglePilot is as easy as cloning the code and making it:
git clone https://github.com/BeaglePilot/ardupilot cd ardupilot
ardupilot supports for the time being three kind of vehicles: copters, planes and rovers. Let's focus on copters for now:
Now we generate some config files (just needed once):
And finally we compile the code:
You could target other boards, no only
erle. At the time of writting,
pxf is also supported.
A log of the compilation process is provided here.
In a BeagleBone (white) running at 720 MHz (perf. mode) the compilation time is about 10 minutes.
After the compilation, you should have an
ArduCopter.build/ArduCopter.elf at the
If you wish to deploy the executables somewhere else define the enviromental variable
TMPDIR. This variable might be defined already if you use one of our images.
