Installation hiccup: Having problems making a full installation of all the Firmware for the Intel Aero RTF Drone using Ubuntu

Hello,

I am currently trying to make a full installation of Ubuntu OS on my Intel Aero RTF Drone but I am having some problems with some of the Firmware. I went through the Yocto installation with this guide

https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup#flashing-the-flight-controller-r...

and had no problems, but when I tried to follow the Ubuntu one

https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/90-(References)-OS-user-Installation

I run into issues regarding the AIRMAP version and the AeroFC Firmware version as they appear as "Unknown" after i complete the installation. I am trying to install PX4 on the drone and this is the information i get after running "aero-get-version.py":

 

BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13

OS_VERSION = Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS"

AIRMAP_VERSION = unknown

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

AeroFC firmware version = unknown

 

I hope someone can give me some guidance on how to solve this issue.

Thank you.

Hi AInte4, Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone. Could you please tell me the output of "sudo aero-get-version.py"? Also, Airmap is not installed yet, version not reported is expected. Regards, Alexandra

OS_VERSION = Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS"

AIRMAP_VERSION = unknown

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

AeroFC firmware version = unknown

Hi AInte4, You said you attached the output of "aero-get-version.py". The firmware should show up when you use "sudo". Did you use "sudo"? Regards, Alexandra

Hi AInte4, What happened when you ran the command "sudo aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4"? What was the output? Regards, Alexandra

Hi again,

 

Thank you for the responses.

 

I've fixed the issue.

The "sudo aero-get-version.py" command now gives the following output:

 

BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13

OS_VERSION = Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS"

AIRMAP_VERSION = unknown

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

AeroFC firmware version = 1.6.5

 

I fixed this issue by following the following link:

Thank you for your help :)
