Tom Pittenger shared this video demo of how you can fly the UAVDevBoard (or possibly any other autopilot) over the Internet via an Andorid phone.
Here's his illustration of how it works:
Oh, kuddos to Microchip!
Not sure I understand this paragraph, but I don't know this device so I guess it is normal.
When on the field, I guess no-one will ever have a public IP or be able to do source-nat (port fowarding). That's why I was proposing the use of a third-party server.
How is it difficult to talk to the USB module with a microcontroller? I thought you would communicate with it using serial.
Either using a USB host shield or (forgive me I am not very well versed in the detail of microcontrollers etc) from my research there is a Serial-to-USB chip on the board.. could the serial just be tapped into before it reaches the chip and bypass the USB all together?
Let me know about the TCP server/client issue. I just tried to do some testing across the network and nothing seems to work. On my local PC everything works fine with both TCP and UDP. I've noticed that with TCP it handles everything quite well....even at 50Hz. With UDP there's major lag once you crank it up above about 10Hz....
I'll do some more testing with the DNS
