I have been working on an autopilot for an rc airplane using arduino for a while. I have a functioning control loop, and it is now time to scale up the project!
So I am using the beaglebone to control my rc airplane. I am new to python, fairly familiar with linux.
I would like to run debian for this project - its lighter than ubuntu (i do not need any desktop functionality for this project) and I do not really like some of the features on angstrom (avahi, connman etc).
Regardless, I have tried both a debian and angstrom install, and I cannot get the following packages for the pybbio library:
root@drone1:~# apt-get install python-distutils python-mmap python-pyserialReading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package python-distutils
E: Unable to locate package python-mmap
E: Unable to locate package python-pyserial
I did manage serial-python later, but I could not find python-mmap from anywhere else. I am currently downloading a zip for the distutils, we’ll see if that works.
Any ideas here guys??
Ultimately I need the following functionality:
- read sensors from i2c bus
- read ppc from hobby rc receiver
- read gps
- read analog sensoor (airspeed)
- write to servos
