How do I integrate the AECAS collision avoidance system with my quadcopter?

The AECAS collision avoidance systems work in tandem with 1) an autopilot unit, and 2) a unit providing information about obstacles (typically a sensor, but can also be a computing unit pre-processing sensor data).

I want to use another sensor, how do I do?

First of all, let us know what sensor you are thinking of using - we are constantly evaluating the sensors on the market and updating our AECAS compatibility to support as many sensors as possible. If your sensor is not planned, you need to pre-process the sensor data before feeding it into the AECAS unit through a standard interface (see user manual for your specific AECAS model).

Can I integrate several sensors directly with the AECAS unit?

AECAS units currently do not directly support an array of sensors. We sugest that you combine and pre-process the information from all your sensors and feed it into the AECAS unit via our standard interface (see user manual for your specific AECAS model).

How do I integrate the AECAS unit with my auto-pilot?

AECAS units receive from the autopilot the commanded roll and pitch and provide the necessary corrections to roll and pitch. You need to slightly change your autopilot and sum these corrections with the originally commanded roll and pitch - only than will the collision avoidance to work. We are talking with autopilot providers in order to make the AECAS unit plug-and-play.
