Schematics

General Drone Schematic

One can see how the main FMUK66 unit which is responsible for motor control communicates with FRDMK64F board using MAVLink2 protocol. The K64F board gets data from Pixy2 camera and infrared sensor.

Code

MCUXpresso SDK HoverGames enablement

Our solution uses additional Freedom-K64F board to control the drone using MAVLink2 protocol and PixyCam to track objects and follow them – everything wrapped up into the MCUXpresso SDK which allows developers smooth kick-off of new projects.
