I'm not looking for answers I'm looking for guidance. I'm doing a University quadcopter project, and I purchased a pixhawk for autonomous flight mode and I will be using mission planner. I'm going to use 5 ultrasonic sensors placed on the drone, that will ultimately, connect to a beaglebone black. I was thinking of writing a python script for the sensors but I'm slightly confused and don't know where to begin.
How do I interrupt the way point mission planner to run my script once the quad copter is too close to an object? I'm not exactly sure how this works.
