I connected the LIDAR Lite 3 to the AERO.
I then ran the following commands from the Yocto terminal:
systemctl enable aero-optical-flow.service
systemctl status aero-optical-flow
and received the picture attached.
When looking in QGC on the widget QGroundControl>Widgets>MAVLink Inspector> ,
There is no: OPTICAL_FLOW_RAD>quality
Thank you, Yoni.
Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.
Could you tell me what is the output of this command?
Also, please make sure you are following this guide:
I followed both websites:
https://github.com/intel-aero/aero-optical-flow GitHub - intel-aero/aero-optical-flow
please see version in picture attached.
please also see "Optical flow Active" picture attached
Still, not working
Please make sure your sensor is properly connected by running ll40ls test i2c in the mavlink console and that the proper settings were setup in QGround Control.
EKF2_AID_MASK = 3 (use GPS + use optical flow)
EKF2_HGT_MODE = 2 (range sensor)
I followed all the instructions on both websites:
https://pixhawk.org/peripherals/rangefinder# lidar-lite Rangefinder - Pixhawk Flight Controller Hardware Project
In the Inspector and Analyze tools of QGC (see pics) the readings seam ok (may be a bit noisy though).
In the Console tool, there is a problem when typing the 'test' and 'start' commands (see pic). May be it's because the lidar is connected to the Telemetry connector (and not the Compass connector).
Thank you, Yoni.
We have seen progress on your issue on GitHub and it seems to be due to the floor's texture, which is not so good. They recommended the use of PX4flow.
