Product overview


The STSW-FCU001 firmware has been designed for the STEVAL-FCU001V1 evaluation board to support quadcopter drone design.

It comes with six main applications: a remote control interface to interpret data command from remote control; sensor management to retrieve sensor data; an attitude heading reference system (AHRS) to elaborate sensor data in roll pitch yaw angles (quaternions); flight control merging the AHRS output and information coming from the remote control to define the flight strategy; PID control to give commands to the four quadcopter motors.
