Project "Elwood" is updated!

Postby RBBT » Sun May 02, 2010 6:43 am

Elwood is now powered by two LiPo battery packs and has therefore a larger operating range - see our video! We have also done some changes in hardware setup - larger wheels, better Wireless LAN card, in order to use it as an access point, and a GPS Receiver. Creating an autopilot using GPS wasn't successful - but if you like to read more about it please visit our homepage:

How come the GPS auto pilot failed? Not enough position resolution?

Hello Robert,
yes that's the problem. With the Configuration App from u-blox
you can see the deviation between each fix very clearly.
