I would like to program the APM 2.0 and integrate these 6 sensors for obstacle avoidance.
Has anybody done that?? Any hints on how to do this??
Ok...thanks for that...do you also want to implement obstacle avoidance? How may sensors do you intend to use?
I would love to get this working.
That said, I would really love to get it working using video. Maybe OpenCV? But, I am sure Sonar would work just fine, I'm just personally interested in computer vision and analyzing live video on the fly.
I am currently working on this. First implementation for 4 sensors(front,back,right,left) is done, hardware is set up. I am right now looking for a safe way of testing this (At the moment I am trying to get a simulation working), because I am afraid of testing in RL with my copter...
thats fantastic Chris... did you use another arduino board along with the ardupilot mega for intigrating the sensors?
Is there any chance you could explain how you implemented the four sensors into the code, I am trying to incorporate it with using the mission planner 1.2.36. We are trying to use sonar sensors as obstacle avoidance, in an actual flying environment, not as a simulation. We are not afraid to crash our copter if you could help us, we could test it for you.
