Obstacle avoidance

Good day all

I completed my second drone a week or two ago and I thought it was finished !!!  Hehe ... !!

a Few days ago I decided to add obstacle avoidance on and I found some information about that.

Enough to get me going. 

What I was wondering ..... if I mount my sonar device facing the front of the drone and set the

required constants in the parameter list, what will pixhawk do if I fly towards an obstacle ?

Does it back-off ??? Does it go into loiter mode ?? Does it try and find a new way ??

I have looked at a few videos but they don't all show the same behaviour ?


Pixhawk 2.4.8 ( running APM copter V3.5.5 )(27229c83)

Missionplanner 1.3.56 build 1.3.6672.30243

Anyone with some clarification ?

Much appreciated.
