how to enable offboard mode on intel aero using mavros

Jump to solution

Hi,

I want to enable offboard mode for the intel aero running on px4.

The issue i am running into is that whenever i call the takeoff command on mavros, aero goes to a error prone gps locked position. The application that i am working on is in gps completely denied or partially denied environment.

Could you suggest a method where i can write my own takeoff script when there is no or error prone gps lock?

Also how would i enable guided mode or offboard mode for the same thing?

One other issue that i am facing is when I arm the aero from a script it times out and disarms after like 5 sec automatically. Is there any way to disable that?

Thanks,

Aniket

Hello Aniket,

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

Take a look at this sample as it might be helpful for you: https://github.com/intel-aero/sample-apps/blob/master/ros/src/aero_offboard_ctrl/src/aero_offboard_c...

 

 

Also, offboard(manual mode) is supposed to work without GPS lock.

 

As for the script, I would need to see what script are you using to arm the motors, if you're using our sample scripts from https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/04-Autonomous-drone-programming-in-Python those are written to only arm the motors for 5 seconds.

 

 

You can also take a look at this thread: https://communities.intel.com/thread/115384 https://communities.intel.com/thread/115384

 

They seem to have an issue similar to yours.

 

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

 

Octavian
