Attendee count (max): 21
Bisection for flight characteristic regressions coming
UTC2306 - slew rate limitting
Lots of testing has been done
Leonard is happy with it
Randy will look over it and make sure it is OK
Separate fixed wing landing radius etc
MdB appears to have addressed tridge’s initial comments
Particularly for non-achieved stuff
UTC2309 - AP_Periph
PhillipK, Jani and tridge have been working on CANBus periperhals
Build target for AP which builds a firmware which isn’t ardupilot but is a peripheral firmware
Provides a CAN node
Initial target is for the little generic CAN nodes that Jani is selling
Hwdef to define pinout
Passthrough of i2c, spi, uarts
Appear in HAL as being local i2c etc buses
So existing drivers should just work
I2c remotely over CANBus…
That’s the plan, anyway
I.e. doesn’t use the remote-magnetic-field CAN messages
No new sensor drivers needed?
Won’t be able to share the device across multiple autopilots when remoting the bus like this
IO expanders, essentially
More functionality than existing CAN units as AP drivers are more full-featured
Pavel’s not a great fan of this way of doing things…
Currently just comes up and blinks LEDs
Allocation of node/bus ids?
Will probably need to delay bootup for compasses and the like so the remote devices are ready
Still uses CAN messages, so interoperable with other CAN things on the same bus at the same time
Coming at some stage….
F7 and F3 both support pin inversion
Softserial means no external inverter needed on F4
We already have some softserial decoders
The RC stuff, for example
Blheli passthrough too
We have option bits on serials now
Swap RX and TX in software on F7….
Should be able to do ows easily
PixRacer has internal inverter
Full support only on F7s for these serial options
UTC2328 - NuttX removal
Just ONE conscientious objector at the moment
Px4v2 no longer builds on master
ChibiOS builds fmuv2 no worries
CI failing for every PR
Could put effort into making v2 smaller again
PR wasn’t rebased
New landing stuff for Plane was the objection?
8k a few months back when we disabled the bootloader on px4v2 and 1
Chewed through that…
Can we just pull the pin now?
A branch is probably going to have to happen until the conscientious objector can use ChibiOS
RM: a fair bit of time has gone by since we discussed this
Warnings went out a long time ago
Leonard’s moved over
MissionPlanner build has been solved
Randy has no concerns any more
This is master, our playground for the next release
Tridge doesn’t want to do another release of Plane with NuttX supported
No MdB on the call
UTC2335 - Plane onioning
Rebasing is hell for Tom ATM
Tridge could help
Might just restart instead
TP is off after a week
UTC2336 - Randy and Copter
3.6.4rc1 beta coming today or tomorrow
Anything you want included - ping Randy ASAP
Optical flow sensor will go in
Bill’s swashplate for dual helis will go in
UTC2339 - Randy and Rover
Peter is looking at more message splitting
See Jaime’s video of Aion Robotics rover driving around using Cartographer
And there’s documentation floating around for it on the Wiki!
UTC2344 - circling back around to NuttX
Need a decision!
Discussion / browbeating to happen
Will go in in next few days if no response can be had
WIND_MAX not a good solution
Need to log stuff!
Also looked at https://github.com/mavlink/mavlink/issues/929
UTC2354 - next meeting?
Probably not xmas morning….
1st will be a “casual” meeting
No agenda as such
Probably lightly attended
Next official Jan7/8
Thanks everyone for all your work this year!
Congrats to tridge on his new degree
