Hello, I am new to this forum and was hoping someone could help with wiring my LidarLite to an APM board. I have searched but can find no wiring diagram for Lidar and APM. Pixhawk no problem as I can find many examples but none for APM. Can anyone shed any light on this matter?
This says that the Lidar Lite is only supported on the pixhawk
Here's the link: http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-rangefinder-lidarlite/
Thanks Diane, I have looked at that link. I was hoping it might work with the APM board. I know that my Lidar works because I have hooked it up to an arduino. The APM is an arduino so I am hoping there is a way to interface them.
Thanks for the quick response. :)
I'm no expert and am very new to building rc anything.
I built my first F450 quad a month ago so that is my extent of rc expert knowledge.
However the page did say it was only supported on pixhawk 3.3 and higher for copter and planes. I believe that APM 2.X end of life was firmware 3.2.
The APM is just out of space. If you wanted to trim down a custom firmware for the APM to run the Lidar Lite, it is very possible. But I don't see this being supported by the general population.
