Telemetry over cellular IP

Develop standard, re-usable inexpensive solutions for IP-enabled always-on UAVs over cellular IP networks such as GPRS, 3G, 4G etc.

Primary goal: Telemetry over low cost cellular [achieved in testing]

Secondary goal: Bi-directional GCS/Telemetry over cellular IP [achieved in testing]

Tertiary goal: High speed IP for streaming IP video over cellular 3G/4G

STATUS: Bi-directional telemetry over cellular IP (UDP or TCP) is now working. It has been flown successfully while logging live telemetry to a GCS at home, several miles away [distance is really unlimited]. Currently working on improving code, more testing and broader hardware support.

If anyone wants to fly LTE, then check out my latest build, UAVcast-Pro
You are ready in 15min, no linux skills required.

For the Internet of Drones, for which the communication is based on the mobile network, please check this group

Shortly, the DroneRoute platform, owns features as telemetry, remote control, realtime visualization of the drones on the map, obstacles positions sharing, alerts for potential colisions, change the routes on the fly, rtk messages for centimeter level positioning, and others.

The DroneRoute platform can be viewed also as a segment of the IoT network, which targets low power consumption and extended range. For this dedixated standards are being used LTE Cat M1/NB1

Had a very long off-time, but now i´ll be back. Maybe u interested in what we did till 2016 about FPV and R/C via Cellular. Hope my RePost is ok....

Right now we´ll preparing for upcoming spring. Hope we´ll hit some benchmarks ;)

is this still updated? would want to know more especially how to run off multiwii

4Gmetry 4 is coming, stay tuned on

One of the time consuming tasks when integrating a Raspberry Pi or other SBC into a drone is making the power cable. Kashmir World Foundation has some great micro USB to DuPont power cables. You can get one by e-mail:

ok, thanks. Great!

Comment by Bill Piedra on January 14, 2016 at 8:25am

You would need a different telemetry cable - like this one:

Does it work with the APM 2.6 ?
