Automatic Control Systems (Autopilot Kits)

Compact and lightweight modular autopilots for drones

The Automatic Control System (AP) provides the hardware and vehicle control abstraction layer for the host platform enabling fully autonomous operation. All flight systems including take-off, landing, navigation and mission execution can be instigated with a single keystroke. All diagnostics, flight mission planning and remote control can be achieved wirelessly.

A notable feature of the AP is its distributed architecture. Each component of the system has a dedicated microcontroller providing data and communication with other components within the CAN bus. This decentralized configuration helps to manage central processor loading by distributing routine management tasks across all system components. Additionally, there are no restrictions on the number of same-type modules connected to one system, enabling multiple redundancy on all levels. With nearly all payloads or ready-made third-party modules, entire systems can be connected to the AP.
