NVIDIA Jetson Nano for Pixhawk

(Dorukcapraz) #1

Hello all,

I have a NVIDIA Jetson Nano. I want to use it as autonomus flight controller. Is it possible like Jetson TX1&TX2? At the ‘Companion Computers’ link, there is no information about that. At TX2 Link suggests Jetpack 3.3 but Jetson Nano has Jetpack 4.2 Is it compatible for my purpose?

I’m waiting your helps and opinions…
Thanks in advance…

Yes The NANO makes a good Companion Computer. I used it in the visual odometry test with great results

Dear ppoirier, Thank you for your reply,
Did you use Jetpack 4.2 or different Jetpack version and how did you flash APSync?
And i have one more quesiton :slight_smile: Did you use SDK manager for setup activities on Jetson Nano?

Thank you again…

Actually I did not flashed APSYNC, I used the JetPack 4.2 and added packages manually, read the instruction on the blog above ( and associated labs) on how to load different modules like DroneKit Python.

If you are using Jetson Nano with the Intel Realsense T265 tracking camera, a great way to start is to follow the instruction on Jetsonhacks: https://www.jetsonhacks.com/2019/05/07/jetson-nano-realsense-tracking-camera/
