Well, making a long-term view, we expect to accomplish this five objectives for the end of August.
*Establish communication between 2 XBee modules.(We want to be able to send and receive information for our remote control)
*Finish the prototype structure.(i.e. putting all the pieces together. Arduino+IMU+XBee+motors+ ESC’s and batteries all assembled over the structure)
*Set up the “IMU data aquisition and processing routine”(i.e. being able to read data from the sensor and making it usefull for us, software is freeIMU’s library)
*Build the “motherboard”, wich will be a PCB conecting IMU and xBee to the microprocessor. It will also connect ESC’s to PWM outputs.
*Control stability, in one axis, with a PID algorithm.
