    NAVIO

    Autopilot shield for Raspberry Pi

    Will be available for order soon.

Technology

Navio is an autopilot shield for Raspberry Pi. Navio eliminates the need in having multiple controllers onboard making development easier and increasing robustness. Add Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity by simply plugging a device in the USB port, compress video from a camera or even run image recogniton,  these are some features previously unavailable on autopilot platforms. Navio extends connectivity and allows control of all kinds of moving robots: cars, boats, submarines,  multirotors, planes. For accurate knowledge of position and orientation Navio is equipped with  inertial measurement unit and GPS with raw data. 

Features

  • 13 PWM outputs to control servos
  • 9DOF inertial measurement unit
  • Pressure and temperature sensor
  • GPS with carrier phase measurement
  • External GPS antenna
  • 4-channel 16bit ADC
  • Bright RGB LED
  • I2C, SPI, UART ports
  • Standard connectors for extensions and servos

Learning

Raspberry Pi changed the way we think about embedded projects - a powerful Linux platform as easy to use as an Arduino.  Many people put  Raspberry Pi into the heart of their projects not just because of its power, but because of incredible support from the community. Just collect blocks of code on the internet and combine them into something new and unseen before.  This is the power of open source.   Developing Navio we knew that code support is essential for you, this is why we wrote open source libraries for each chip on the board and supplied them with detailed tutorials. We believe that Navio could extend educational capabilities of Raspberry.

Dear Friends, Thank you for all the support and kind words. Indiegogo campaign for Navio ends soon and this is the last chance to get Navio at a special price and with additional accessories: a pack of DF13 jumper wires for connecting extensions and active GPS/GLONASS antenna! Emlid Team

Navio: PPM to PWM on Raspberry Pi

Navio: PPM to PWM on Raspberry Pi

To be used in autopilot applications Navio needs to decode RC input. Measuring each PWM channel requires multiple connectors and plenty of wires. PPM sum signal combines all PWMs from the receiver in one sequence, which could be transferred over single wire.   Most modern receivers output PPM, but if you have an older RC(…)
