Erle-Plane (discontinued)

Erle-Plane

ROS Software Maintainer: Erle Robotics

Overview

Erle-Plane is a fixed-wing drone based on the award winner APM:Plane platform. Our hardware autopilot, Erle-brain, uses the APM autopilot thereby it can run missions following a list of recorded GPS waypoints.

Compared to other aerial robots such as Erle-Copter, Erle-Plane is ideal for missions that require more autonomy (time-wise) and where a big terrain must be covered.

Erle-Plane is powered by a Linux autopilot which includes ROS and communicates with the flight software using the mavros ROS package.

Installation

ROS Indigo comes preinstalled in the Erle-Brain 2, the flight computer contained in Erle-Plane.
