Any idea if Collision avoidance using IR or Sonar sensors will be implemented for Arducopter firmware now that Pixhawk has come out with much higher processing capability?

Thx John!

Dear Mike,

i am interested in adapting the distance lock mode. Could you give me some help where to start programming or even some code? I would appreciate that very much.

hello mike i was wondering how you attached the arduino nano to pixhawk so pixhawk and it can communicate because now i am using the uno board and sonar to opperate retractable landing gear , but it runs independant from pixhawk so i have no overide control with my radio thanks for your time looking forward to hearing back from you

If you have a spare receiver channel dedicated to the Retracts, then you can just read the PWM signal into the Uno, decode it and act on a value. If you're using PPM like I am between the Receiver and Flight Controller, and want to get at one of the higher channel numbers, then what I did was hijack one of the spare gimbal outputs (PAN or YAW) I only use tilt and use the pan output on the APM for the retracts. Feed that PPM signal to the Uno.
