Telemetry over cellular IP

Develop standard, re-usable inexpensive solutions for IP-enabled always-on UAVs over cellular IP networks such as GPRS, 3G, 4G etc.

Primary goal: Telemetry over low cost cellular [achieved in testing]

Secondary goal: Bi-directional GCS/Telemetry over cellular IP [achieved in testing]

Tertiary goal: High speed IP for streaming IP video over cellular 3G/4G

STATUS: Bi-directional telemetry over cellular IP (UDP or TCP) is now working. It has been flown successfully while logging live telemetry to a GCS at home, several miles away [distance is really unlimited]. Currently working on improving code, more testing and broader hardware support.

I have successfully flown my quadrotor over 3g internet via on-board computer. Soon to be 4g internet. Custom ground station thanks to Cameron Lattz. Full HD video stream and full Mavlink telemetry. More info in future posts soon.

New cellular_modem library, v0.5 ready for testing. The library now supports both APM1 and APM2 hardware, on both ArduCopter and ArduPlane (can be trivially added to Boat or Rover too). 

Instructions and code here: http://diydrones.com/group/telemetry-over-cellular-ip/page/testing-...

Detailed instructions for testing a GSM modem (eg dronecell) with the new Cellular Modem telemetry library have been posted here: http://bit.ly/HTAKQj

Update: Have cellular modem working, both TCP/UDP.

Dusan, would that device work out of the box with apm? Is it meant to replace physical usb cord with a "wireless usb cord" over gsm network?
Comment by Dusan on April 6, 2012 at 8:48pm

No not yet, I just red about it at hackaday.com and I thought sharing

Dusan, 

That module would work. Are you building one?

Comment by Dusan on April 6, 2012 at 8:40pm

They nailed it ! right on !!

I need volunteer beta testers for the DroneCell code. If you have a dronecell and are willing to help me test code, let me know.

No experience needed - in fact I want to see what happens with the code if used by "regular" Ardupilot users who are not IP savvy. After all, it should be as "plug and play" as the Xbee, that's a stated goal. 

Anyone? See here: http://diydrones.com/group/telemetry-over-cellular-ip/forum/topics/...

Andreas, is the DronCell supporting 3G?
