Hi everyone,

I'd like to introduce Erle-Brain (https://erlerobotics.com/blog/product/erle-brain/) Linux autopilot, a ROS-powered embedded computer that allows to build different kind of drones and robots.

Using Erle-Brain we've build several vehicles (Erle-Copter, Erle-Plane, Erle-Rover, ...) displayed at http://wiki.ros.org/Robots and we keep exploring new paths. The brain runs the APM software autopilot (in Linux) which connects with ROS through the mavros bridge allowing to control the robots simply publishing to ROS topics.

This ROS package (https://github.com/erlerobot/ros_erle_takeoff_land) shows a simple example on how to autonomously take off and land a VTOL powered by Erle-Brain.

We are really excited to see what people can do with our Brain and vehicles so we've decided to launch a program that offers discounts for educational and research purposes called dronEDU (dronedu.es).
Feel free to get in touch with us if you are interested.
