I am a mechanical engineering student in the hobby of rc planes and lately I started a project, in that project I plan on using the pixhawk cube black + HERE 2 GPS.
i have a few questions that i couldn’t find the answer to anywhere and love if you could help me, maybe it’s because my knowledge in electronics is very basic so far.
- what is the data rate at which the pixhawk and GPS record the data and if it’s possible to control that speed? i.e can I decide what is the rate that the speed is being recorded?
2)At some point in the project I would need to attach a pump to the system, and I would like to know the pressure in the pump, can I attach a pressure sensor to the pixhawk to measure it? If so, how can i do that? is the i2c port or GPS port a good option? How can I configure it in mission planner?
3)Can I program the ardupilots code? similar to coding arduino? or is it a closed code?
thank you very much in advance, any help would be highly appreciated!
