I am Jose Luis from Quaternium, for those who do not know our project we are developing a hybrid quadrotor. It is an electric multicopter with a range extender that consists of combustion engine and an electric generator.
I think we need some developments to adapt the APM to our specific case. We use a dropix hardware with standard firmware installed with the mission planner. Than we need is integrate all channels of the range extender so this information will be available in missionplanner/tower...
I am talking for example in
- Current at generator, RPM, engine temperature, fuel level ....
We use Tower, We could also go to mission planer but we prefer to use Tower
We have 2 CAN buses in our range extender control electronics. We are planning to connect our range extender control to the pixhawk through the CAN bus.
We have a software/hardware guy that helps us eventually but he has no experience with APM/mission Planner/TOWER.
It is complex because in this there are several different projects involved.I would like some advice as to how to do this.I think if there are people familiar with this code it could be better and cheaper to talk with these people instead of trying to do it ourselves, Is that possible? Who would these people be?
