Unmanned vehicles have common needs: energy to think and move around, sensors to interact with their environment, communication skills and servo control. It really doesn't matter if the vehicle is going to fly, float, dive or move over hard surfaces. In most cases all of the above requirements are present in one form or another.
I've been working on this project for some time. It is a modular flight controller. It was made modular so I could work on one module without worrying about breaking down the rest of the system. I wanted to be able to upgrade a module with a new sensor, component or capability as much as I wanted the whole system to configure itself every time a new module was plugged. A desired sub-product of this design should be the ability to handle redundancy. Sensor, pilot and engine redundancy. A die hard system.
After considering the possibilities, I decided to move this project to open source and open hardware. I hope to attract your interest and bring you to this new development community.
