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.

    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 ;)

    FPV & R/C over multiple public cellular networks
    back on street on minute 22:00 ;) Today i´d tried the first high speed tests on public streets with our rover. Time was good cause the streets were e…
  • 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: info@kashmirworldfoundation.org3702218746?profile=original

  • ok, thanks. Great!

  • Moderator

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


  • Does it work with the APM 2.6 ?

  • NEW 2016 - 4Gmetry III - turnkey 4G telemetry over 4G, just plug&play.

need help understanding if we can rin it on a 2560 multiwii?

hi guys might have a project that require telemetry especially tracking and logging . how do I get about setting up an multiwii 2560 drone to communicate to GSM module and what would be on the server side if it uses 3G 4G systems im looking for people to collabthe idea is to run it off a web browser and serversuggested links pertaining to hardwares and codes on both aircraft side and server side would be helpfulthanks

Telemetry via LTE, Controlling your infrastructure.

Hey guys, I'm brand new to this forum, but far from brand new to the sUAS industry.  I've been a engineer and developer in this arena since about 2012.  I wanted to hop into this discussion to get some insight and exposure for some of the stuff I've been working on.  I'm the Chief Innovations Officer at Fenix Group Solutions out here in D.C.  I wanted to expose you guys (hopefully reaching the developer community) to VCore.  VCore is a fully virtualized 4G LTE core network in the form factor of…

WiFi Drone Disabler - Security Matters

Hey guys,I came across an article about making a Drone WiFi disabler on Make that I thought was cool. Then I realized that this could be a future problem for some people. In short, make sure that you are setting up encryption especially if running SoftAp.This hack basically makes use of the fact that some manufacturers don't set the encryption by default when first launched out of the box. This is just a heads up to everyone so you aren't a future…
