code:ground_control

This is an old revision of the document!


This AVR code constantly checks the PWM input for pulse lenght. If a stream of 10 pulses are detected that match the criterion, the input PWM in routed to the output. A single failing PWM pulse will cause control to revert back to internal guidance. Useful for UAVs, allowing control to be regained from the ground in the event of a faulty control algorthym.
