Any such project needs some service and visualization application . The application is written in Qt framework and is multiplatform (tested on Linux and Windows 7/8). Recently, the application has been redesigned to smoothly work in tablets.
It is designed to
- visualize all measured data
- Help with magnetometer and accelerometer calibration.
- Test peripherals (like servos and GPS)
- Manual control of the helicopter (if needed)
For now this is anything it can do (plus loading and saving of received data). One day in future it should be able to process stored data from HELI’s embedded system and e.g. plan route.
Here are just some examples of data received from HELI.
A simple EFIS display.
New version for tablets…
PS: Special thanks to Qwt plotting library.
