Attended “Aerial Robots” session of the annual event of The Robotics Society of Japan held in 2018/ Sep. Tokushima University and Defense University presented VTOL designs. ArduPilot and PX4 are the choose of autopilot.The number of research papers with regard to AI or Deep Learning increased.
I presented my custom made quadcopter with UAVCAN at the research result presentation day in 2018/ July. A communication bus called “CAN” is often used inside automobile. There is a community in Europe and America to utilize CAN bus for drone design, which is called UAVCAN”. My first step is to replace ESC’s (motor controller) from conventional PWM signals to UAVCAN on F450 quadcopter I made. This work was the following-on effort after ArduPilot Japan educational class works held in 2017/ Spring.
I got the certificates of UAV flight operator, safety management and school instructor from the issuer called JUIDA in 2017.
