I have a project consisting to let a drone flying over cars ; only indoors (warehouse) to perform inspections autonomously. I'm considering buying an Intel aero RTF to start some tests. I understand the RTF need both PX4Flow and Marvelmind GPS (or any NMEA 0183 compatible format) to let the drone flying indoor.
A couple of questions :
- Do You confirm both external GPS (NMEA 0183 compat format) + PX4Flow must be attached on the RTF to flying indoor and handle both X/Y positions ? Otherwise Is there any alternatives ?
- Is it doable for the Intel RTF + PX4Flow to fly over cars while maintaining constant altitude ? (screenshot attached)
- I understand that connecting an external GPS sounds good, could You confirm it just a matter to connect the GPS on the compass connector present in the RTF ?
- I planed to use Dronekit to automate mission. Do You confirm Dronekit is aware of both External GPS and PX4Flow data ? And is working fine on the intel RTF ?
I'm not experienced in drone but have strong knowledge in C++/Python. pls accept my apologies if my questions were irrelevant. rgds
Hi Eliza and thanks for Your quick reply. The Cars will be static and turned off for inspections ;
Recall the 3.
- Do You confirm flying indoor with intel's RTF can potentially require only a PX4Flow and no external GPS such as marvelmind (or any other UWB / NMEA 0183 ) ? Again and to avoid any risk of misunderstanding ; Do You confirm a PX4Flow is able to substitute an external GPS (like UWB/marvelmind) to program a drone path indoor ? ( vertical and horizontal spaces )
- As a body car is a specific kind of surface ; Do You confirm the optical lens of PX4Flow will not be disturbed by this kind of surface (generating reflects etc.) ? while flying and maintaining ~80cm over the car ? Again, to avoid any risk of misunderstanding ; The goal is to let the drone flying over a car while following its natural curves and maintaining a constant altitude (hood, roof, trunk). Is the PX4Flow can match this specific requirement ?
All the best, rgds a
p.s I attached a new screenshot giving an idea of the RTF mission and what we want to achieve using Intel's platform.
