Walkera + Arduino = Walkino

Thursday, December 22, 2016

walkino-1.png During the last few blog posts about hacking Walkera quadcopter receivers I sought an easy way of programming them. Currently the easiest way of programming a microcontroller is by using the Arduino IDE. In this post I describe the integration of Walkera RC receiver board into the Arduino IDE.

This will also be the last post of this series as I have achieved (almost) all goals. Future ideas meight be to port the MultiWii firmware to Walkera boards or to use the boards for something completely different. In 2016 we had the idea to use a QR-Ladybird RX2634H board as a secure fitness tracker and made a submission to austrian support program NetIdee. See a short video about it on youtube (in german). Unfortunately it was rejected.

ESA AMP testbed completed

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Finally after about two years of development the AMP (Advanced Mobility Protocolls) testbed developed for the European Space Agency (ESA) was delivered to its European Space Research and Technology Center (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, Netherlands.

AMP consists of a virtualization host, cisco switches, a JAR Network Emulator and some physical hosts and allows the simulation of various IPv6 mobility protocolls in a satellite context like PMIP, NEMO and MPTCP. It is completely self contained, remote controllable and can simulate even complex network layouts.

It was a pleasure to work on this project!
