"Hello, As the title says, it is GPS denied environment. To make it clear and simple,  we are generally referencing to  "non-GPS"  so everyone can understand that the autonomous modes (like Loiter - Guided and Auto) are being…"

"a short question since the term "Indoor non-GPS flight" gets repeated 3 times, are you suggesting Indoor GPS flight to be a valid alternative ? To my understanding, Indoor GPS is nothing what should be considered as a reliable technology…"

"Well, it is a little off-topic, but what you might consider is using the D435 API (or Python Wrapper) to generate the 100 points x 100 points depth live array. I did something similar and it works quite good. We are looking as well or the…"

"Also @Patrick: when you copied the lab description by mistake you also copied the number of clicks, making it a bit confusing about "ROS 2" based labs (I got quite excited for a second!)"

Mateusz Sadowski commented on Patrick Poirier's blog post Autonomous Flying using the RealSense T265 Tracking Camera in GPS Denied Environment
"WOW! Great job! I strongly believe that combining ROS and ArduPilot can result in really powerful applications. Are there any plans to host those tutorials outside of ArduPilot forums? I'll be sharing the information about the labs in the next…"
