    PX4 on Aero Compute Board

    bgee

      Does PX4 run on the Compute Board or the Flight Controller?  Since the compute board has an IMU, barometer, and magnetometer can PX4 run on it without the flight controller? 

      In addition to the IMU built into the flight controller (Intel Aero FC or a third party FC), the Intel Aero Compute Board includes a 6-DOF IMU: BMI 160 sensor. This sensor is connected to the Intel Atom processor via its SPI interface on bus 3 (SPI3) chip select 0 (CS0). It can be accessed via spidev as /dev/spidev3.0. The Aero Compute Board also integrates a magnetometer and a pressure sensor on its I2C.
