Detailed Description

Purpose

The Intel® Aero Compute Board is a purpose-built, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developer kit powered by a quad-core Intel Atom® Processor. It's geared toward UAV developers, researchers, and enthusiasts.

Intel® Aero Compute Board features:

  • Storage capabilities
  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi*
  • Support for multiple cameras including the Intel® RealSense™ Camera R200, which is part of the optional Intel® Aero Vision Accessory Kit
  • Industry standard interfaces
  • Reconfigurable I/O to facilitate connecting to a broad variety of drone hardware subsystems

The compute board includes open-source Yocto Linux* operating system, sample applications, and APIs for flight and vision interfaces.

Note:

It's necessary to update the BIOS, FPGA, and Flight Controller for this software release. For instructions to update the BIOS, FPGA, and Flight Controller, see the Wiki.
