Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

[b]Collision Avoidance Project (C.A.P.)[/b]

I am looking to associate with an individual or a small group (2-3), preferably in the UK  or Europe (Time Zones can a problem sometimes).

However I would not rule anyone out due to where they live.

The aim of the project is to implement a Collision Avoidance System for APM 2.5 ArduCopter.

Arduplane and APMrover2 would be addressed in due course if considered suitable.

All work would be carried out under the terms of the open source licence where  you are obligated to make work public so the whole community will benefit.
(See - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/) Not necessarily complete but you get the idea

As you may have seen I have posted a few times recently about Collision Avoidance  as I consider this to be an important addition to the capabilities of Arducopter.

This would have an impact on Safety Issues and Avoidance of damage to Drones amongst others things.

What is needed from the volunteers is the Capability to develop and refine the necessary code for "Arducopter" as an addition to Version  3.0.1.

Please will only People who can Demonstrate their skill in Writing Code for the ATMega2560 Processor and have some Spare Time available Apply.

My background is in Electronic Design & Engineering and I will be undertaking Hardware developments that become necessary during the course of the project.

So Far -

1/ I have found a unit that uses a processor, a camera, and a Laser Diode to create a low-cost laser range finder.

With the right Code and some Hardware Modifications this will make Collision Avoidance a reality

2/All engineering details of the unit have been released as an open source under a Creative Commons license.

3/ Documentation is available on the Module  -

    Technical Manual
    Gerber Files
    PCB Layout
    Assembly Drawing
    Test Procedure
    Viewer Program with source code
    PCB Gerber Files and dimensioned Drawings
    Schematic file

And I have a collection of a further 60+ files with additional information that is relevant to the Project.

4/ I have assessed the hardware and have a "First Fit" on integration to make it more usable and  improve it.

I look forward to hearing from anyone who is up for an iinteresting challenge.
