This is what the wiki says:
|Yaw tracking option||ALtitude (in meters)||Latitude||Longitude|
But in the mission planner, there is Command, P1, P2, P3, P4, Lat Lon Alt.
How do I fill these boxes in to get my XCopter to point at a ROI? For example, launch, fly to an area, set the XCopter to face a location while navigating a course, then return the Xcopter to normal facing (forward?), and continue on to the end of the mission. In other words, do a fly-by with my forward facing fixed camera pointed where I want. I think this is what the ROI command in mission planner is for, but I can't find the details on how to set it.
These explanations (or whatever is current and correct) should really go in the http://copter.ardupilot.com instructions.
I have what I think is a really silly question for you guys... as a fairly new person and someone who doesn't script by any means or know anything about it. But the idea is in my head and I'm just thinking out loud (sort of speak)
I know ROI will point camera in that general area, and the Follow Me feature pretty much tracks the other target via gps but I found this open source video tracking software online which got me thinking... It claims to be fairly simple python code (about 40 lines or so) which I have NO idea if it's even possible. But would there be any way of incorporating something like to actually track objects without means of gps? The website is here: http://openvisionc.sourceforge.net/ I'm probobly just talking out of my ass..but I was curious if since it's open source if it could be incorporated by someone savy person to provide a legitimate targeting option for our UAV's? Without having to pay crazy amounts of money for a real targeting options for uav's? Just putting it out there..
