Hi! I have a small question about best way to control (get telemetry and send wp & routes) Arducopter using Raspberry Pi.
I have Raspberry Pi B and Arducopter onboard on my quadcopter linked by usb-cable.
I did read those topics
and I've started to use this fork of roscopter project - https://github.com/epsilonorion/roscopter/wiki
I successfully got telemetry from APM to ROS-topics but as I understand roscopter can't be used for navigation right now - it's still under development.
So I'm trying to find best way how to send waypoints and routes to Arducopter. I don't want to reinvent the wheel and write tons of code for own MAVlink implementation.. Jason Short wrote somewhere here about code written on python using for Mission Planner unit-testing but can't find where is this repository.
For sure this is another way to run APM Planner or Mission Planner on Raspberry and try to use internal python-scripting but I think this way is little bit crappy ;)
Thanks a lot in advance for answers and solutions!
I put this wiki page up on the dev wiki which talks about running mavlink on the RaspberryPi. It can send various commands to the Pixhawk (or APM2 I guess although there's no connection diagram on the page for that.)
thanks for info, Randy!
1) there is phrase on the first screenshot "no script loaded" - does it mean that I can run this scripts (same as for Mission Planner) - http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-using-python-scripts-in-mis... or not?
2) did you try to send navigation command to copter via mavlink? Here is few info about that - http://qgroundcontrol.org/mavlink/mission_interface#mavlink_mission... but not so usefull... =(
Hi, what about results? As I see here https://github.com/epsilonorion/roscopter/wiki/Exploring-Waypoint-C... - it's just exploring without any success yet..
I think the best way is to find that framework for Mission Planner testing and just rewrite it little bit.. Or I'm wrong?
