Pushing a custom simulink UAV model to px4.

25 views (last 30 days)
Hello @everyone,
Please, I am looking for a step by step tutorial on how to develop px4_simulink_app from UAV simulink model using Simulink UAV Toolbox support package, in order test the performance of my custom controller in a real-life quadrotor flight test.
Thank you.

Have you tried out thecontroller deployment examples in the support package? The support package already contains controller deployment examples which you can run on Host or Autopilot. You dont need to develop the px4_simulink_app. The support package will take care of that for you

As per the documentation you shared, you have to run Monitor & Tune. See Task 3. Follow the doc to see the correct behavior

As per your initial question, I understand that you want to deploy the custom controller on a PX4 autopilot for a real flight test. From the Comments from the earlier answer, I see that you are facing issues with SITL as well. Since your end goal is to try with real hardware, I would recommend you start creating a custom controller and verify it with HITL before the actual flight. You can refer to the HITL example to get started.

have you set the serial port of your pixhawk Mini correctly in the HITL model?

Please, what can I do to solve this problem... I deployed my custom controller in SITL UAV Toolbox support package for PX4 using the example model, the controller could not stabilize the quadcopter in jMAVSim it goes up, fly around and then crash. The controller works well in the model base design in simulink.
Thank you.
