Autonomous Kit for Overo

The kit consists of the following components:

Powered by an AeroCore 2 for the Overo, which contains an ARM Cortex-M4 microprocessor, and an included Overo AirSTORM-Y, the Autonomous Kit For Overo offers all the tools you need for your unmanned aerial vehicle.

With NutX RTOS for real-time servo control and onboard WiFi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 communications, the Autonomous Kit for Overo will have you flying in no time at all.

The brain of the kit is the AeroCore 2 MAV control board which runs NuttX RTOS for real time servo control and sensor measurements. The Overo COM provides access to onboard wifi and Bluetooth 3.0 and/or 802.11b/g/n wireless communications transmitted by the U.FL antenna. It is fully compatible with PX4 software, including MAVLink and QGroundControl and supports Mission Planner, ArduPilot and APM Planner.
