We are currently working on a drone for a university project work.
It is quadcopter and flight controller is APM 2.5.
The point of the project is to implement A* algorithm (finding short path on a discretized terrain). So the flight of the drone should be described in advance according to algorithm work results, sent from GCS via a protocol (Mavlink I guess).
THE QUESTION IS - is it possible to exctract what remote control sends (when drone is told to go forward, for instance), generate it on GCS then and send from GCS (where algorithm calculation happens) to drone directly, avoiding any user participation in remote control or Mission Planner?
Thank you for your attention.
