This is my third article about Andruav, last one was a couple of weeks ago that was about the Telemetry feature in Andruav.
Since then some updates has been done to telemetry that I want to mention it here.
Andruav Telemetry has taken one more step forward. Now it can use USB besides Bluetooth when connecting to Flight Control Board (FCB). Also communication between drone and GCS has been extended so that Andruav GCS can detect multiple telemetries on different drones and switch between them as shown in above video. Also protocol overhead has been reduced, which allows it now to work with less bandwidth up to 25%.
The video shows the below setup configuration:
We have two Andruav mobiles, one of them on Quad which is the Drone-Mode Andruav and the other on land in pilot's hand which is GCS-Mode Andruav , The Quad has Ardupilot board, the board is connected to Drone-Mode Andruav using USB cable - it can also use a Bluetooth connection-.
On ground we have GCS-Mode Andruav mobile, and another mobile that runs Droid Planner, BTW you may use a laptop with Mission Planner on it.
The video starts actually showing when everything is connected and then make a playback showing from the beginning how to make such connection.
I want here to mention three things:
1- My english language is bad :( sorry .... I need to work on it.
2- When trying to make this type of connection you need Andruav GCS to have access to both a wi-fi and Internet, so you have two options:
a. Andruav GCS is connected to a wi-fi that can access Internet as well.
b. Andruav GCS has 3G/4G connection, and here you need to enable Wi-Fi Tethering so that the third mobile can connect to Andruav GCS.
In my demo all mobiles where connected to Wi-Fi router, however both Andruav mobiles are connected and communicated through a server in Andruav.com server.
3- If you see the last part of the video you will find that Andruav Camera Shooting and HUD info are working and independent of the telemetry feature that works in parallel.
Have a safe flight :)
