A team of Cyanogen engineers spent the past couple of days hacking at the Intel IoT Roadshow, working with the Intel Edison Platform.

Behold their creation...the Physical Monkey Tester! #IoTRoadshow

Building APM Planner on Fedora 20

I recently received my Quanum Nova quadcopter from HobbyKing.com and since the flight controller is based on APM I needed to get APM planner up and running so I could take full advantage of this platform.  Unfortunately they only provide instructions for building and running APM Planner on Ubuntu 13.10.  I for one am not an ubuntu fan and I currently run Fedora 20 on my desktop and my netbook.  Now, building APM Planner is a breeze provided you have the necessary dependencies installed.  So, here's a quick guide to getting APM Planner up and running on Fedora 20.

1) Installing the necessary dependancies
sudo yum install phonon qt-devel phonon-devel phonon-backend-gstreamer qt-creator flite flite-devel OpenSceneGraph-devel OpenSceneGraph-qt-devel openssl-devel libudev-devel libsndfile-devel make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel qt-webkit-devel SDL*

2) Clone the apm_planner project
git clone https://github.com/diydrones/apm_planner.git apm_planner

3) Change directory to apm_planner and build
cd apm_planner
qmake-qt4 qgroundcontrol.pro
make

4) Once built run apm_planner (from the apm_planner directory)
./release/apmplanner2

That should get you going with APM Planner on Fedora 20.  If you are building on a machine with multiple cores you can always use make -jN, where N is the number of cores you have, for a faster build.

Now that I am some what settled into my new place in Seattle, I managed to find some time to finalize the beta testing and push an update to Google Play.  Google Play should be sending out update notifications in a couple hours.  The update you get is a production build and no longer requires being in the beta program to receive this update.

I've released a beta for both the ad supported and ad free versions.  The ad supported beta can be accessed at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.scheffsblend.activedisplay_ads

and the ad free version at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.scheffsblend.activedisplay

So pick your poison!

A few screen shots showing what's new in the beta release of Active Display.  I've added some new settings and broken them up into categories which are accessible via the navigation drawer.  In addition to the obvious changes, there are more optimizations and fixes under the hood as well.
