MultiWii configurator Introduction ============== MultiWii is a open-source software to control multirotors. It is designed to run on 8bit boards like Arduino. When configured, compiled and flashed it turns the board into a flight-controller. mw-*nix ============== This project aims to simplify and extend the functionality of MultiWii by providing set of packages such as mw-mavlink (that makes MultiWii mavlink capable so you can use i.e. QGroundControl), mw-ws (that allows user to monitor and control MultiWii through a web-browser), mw-ps3 (to fly MultiWii using a PS3 controller), mw-cli (to control it from a command line), or mw-config (to configure, compile and flash MultiWii without the use of any additional programmers). All of this is achieved through the use of a driver (mw-service) that it designed to run on a auxiliary *nix SoC board like Beagleboard, Raspbery Pi, Odroid, etc (the SoC has to be running an *nix OS) ----------------- ---------- ---------- Link | QGroundControl | | MultiWii | ---uart--- | SoC | - - - - - Wifi/Bluetooth/etc - - - - - - | Web browser | ---------- ---------- | cmd / ps3 | ----------------- To make the full use of the functionality it requires the multirotor to carry 2 boards - MW & SoC. mw-config ============== This is a *nix package (part of mw-*nix) that allows users to: - configure, compile and flash MultiWii through webbrowser - monitor other MultiWii *nix services like mavlink It contains set of scripts and a website to be installed on the host board (running *nix). Requirements ============== - *nix board with uart interface (i.e. Raspberry Pi / Beagleboard) - local http server (i.e. apache, nginx) with PHP 5.2.0 or greater - build tools (autotools, libtool, automake, arduino-mk, binutils-avr, gcc-avr, avr-libc) - for automatic flashing: spi interface and avrdude package To use the automatic flashing functionality the host board requires to be interfaced with avr over spi. See: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rpicopter/mw-config/master/www/img/wiring.png Installation ============== - ./autogen.sh - make & sudo make install - copy www folder into your http folder (suggest to rename it to 'config') - execute mw-config-start.sh (you might want to run it on every boot i.e. using rc.local) Running ============== - open a web browser and navigate to help screen for further instructions if needed Other notes ============== mw-config-start This is a script that starts all services that are defined in $(sysconfdir)/mw (i.e. /usr/local/etc/mw)
