Google Summer of Code discussions - http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/gsoc-ideas-list.html
@patrickpoirier51 sorry sir I am unable to understand what languages are required to solve the issues and how can I understand the issue and which books and websites i can refer to understand and solve the issues
i will be pleased if you provide me with course name,links links or name of books etc please guide me should i start with embedded coding i know c++ with one year experience of compitive coding i will be very happy to contribute
@gmmkmtgk Just like I wrote before, there is plenty of information on the site. More specifically , you can look at he wiki https://ardupilot.org/dev/
@cohen39 Thank you!
Hi. Is there any sample algorithm or block diagram for Ardupilot Attitude Estimator? If there is, Can you share me? I couldn't found yet. Thanks.
The main attitude estimator is an EKF; some papers are mentioned here:
You should start by try the simulator and then on github search for the good first issue on the issues list. That way you have an idea of what we are doing and what can be wrong
We are now in the Organization Project Selection phase at Google. We received a lot of good proposals and we are reviewing them carefully. Sadly we won't be able to accept them all but we really appreciate the applications in any case.
@patrickpoirier51 thank you for the update......can you tell us how many students will be selected for this summer? Or in Google terms, the number of "slots" ardupilot has recieved? Regards
Well, I have to be cautious here.... Let's say that if someone was looking at our organisation past history with GSoC he could probably extrapolate the numbers ;-)
Also can you please tell us the procedure ardupilot follows for selection? Do the relevant mentors sort the applications? Is the application read by multiple mentors, or just one? Is there unified grading scheme.... much thanks for the reply.
@KareemKher_twitter You can refer to this blog under ArduPilot Selection Process. Hope it helps and best of luck!
yep, what is in the blog post is a good summary on what the selection process is !
Good morning every one! just a few hours away before the student selections are revealed. Good Luck to everyone!
A few minutes left for the results
Best of luck to everyone
Congratulations to the 5 students who were successful this year! We had a very good set of applications this year and the selection process was quite difficult. We only have a limited number of mentors available which unfortunately limits how many students we could accept
If any of the sucessful students would like to share their proposals publicly that may help students to put together good applications for next year. Just remove any personal information first if you don't want to share that. It is not at all required to share it, but I think quite a few of the other students would be interested in seeing just how good the applications were.
Thanks again for all the proposals. As Tridge says we had quite a few top quality proposals and it was a really hard choice.
I am really excited that all the projects we have selected have been accepted by Google. They cover a good spectrum of our development field and offer a good mix of new blood and continuity .
Nice to meet you. I am a student who started studying ardupilot for the first time. I have a question. IIn the ArduCopter, the main thread goes through the initialization process and receives the values from the sensors. I want to know what source code is defined and how the source code works. For example, I would like to study the process where copter.cpp's fast_loop() function is called by which code and how it is executed. In Arducopter project so many source code...... it makes me confused..... please help me. thanks!!!
hello, i intend to contribute to this platform, but the sad my knowledge isn't suffice at all , thruthfully speaking i have experience in cp only, so please can someone guide where to start from.
Hello, I am completely new to this channel, and also fairly new to the ardupilot community. I have a balance bot project that I'm working on, and would love some input on how to implement a special new mode in the rover code base to allow my balance bot to "park". Right now, I have a retractable tail that can be deployed and retracted if the balance bot needs to rest or recharge. All I want is a mode where the bot can tip backwards on to the deployed tail, but not forward during park mode. I've been looking at the balance bot code, and have some simple ideas on how to do this, but would be open to suggestions from people way more capable than me. Thanks.
i dont know anything about this , im really intrested in learnig about this tech. can anyone please provide any link or website where i can learn about this from scratch.
i know basic programming (c,c++,python,java)
Any suggestion on how a newbie should start in ardupilot development
Or where i can learn all about ardupilot

@003V here - https://ardupilot.org/dev/ -> after you understand what an autopilot system like ardupilot is, you can start by setting up the SITL simulator and then dive into the codebase and experiment !
Thanks a lot sir @harshitsankhla
Hi. Is there anyone using CUAV X7 Pro? I'm looking for some test data about this product. If there is, can you share it with me? Also, I'm wondering about your opinions about that device. Thanks
Hello, i have a question.... Like the command'sim_vehicle.py -f gazebo -iris --console --map' I am wondering if it is possible to integrate with gazebo using autotest.py.
Hi, my sim_vehicle.py file starts running the simulation window but I cannot see map/console?
hello there, I am student of 2 nd year of IC engineering I really want learn how this automation system work how can i do that ?
@kadirdogantr_twitter I have a X7 Pro, and it looks really nice. I haven't flown it yet, but plan to put it in a new plane next week
I'm Rachitt Shah,studying electronics and communications,and would really like to contribute to the organixation!
