Flying autonomously

A GPS Controlled Glider
Providing autonomous steering for a model aircraft poses fewer problems than autonomous vehicle control. You can even build the controller yourself. It doesn’t need extreme computing power, a Renesas microcontroller is more than sufficient. The only sensor we use for this design is a small GPS receiver. Connectors are also provided to hook up an optional multi-axis accelerometer, rotation sensor and magnetometer.
