  • UAV Telemetry

    Primary Objectives:

    *Design a wireless system that will allow for Bidirectional

    Communication between Airframe Control System and a ground

    base station.

    *The base station must be outfitted with a Graphical User

    Interface (GUI) application that will display all relevant flight

    data. This includes positional and diagnostic information.

    System Design

    Serial

    (RS-232) data

    read into radio

    Data sent

    to ground

    radio

    Interprets data

    and displays to

    the user

    Sends take

    Picture command

    to radio

    Command sent

    to radio on UAV

    Command given to

    control board.

    Mission Statement:

    UAV telemetry is a member of the unmanned aerial Vehicle family of projects that is

    intended to create an open source, open architecture platform for aerial imaging

    systems.

    Results

    Engineering Spec vs. Final Result

    -Able to be carried on UAV airframe C

    -capable of running for the maximum expected flight time,

    for all expected flight conditions.

    -allows for bidirectional communication between

    the UAV’s onboard controls system and a PC on the ground

    -Software is open source and multiplatform

    -GUI displays all relevant data

    -GUI allows user to send take picture command

    System met or exceeded all of our design goals:
