Dear Drone code members,
I would like to connect some external sensors (i.e., CO2 sensor, Humidity sensor…) to the Pixhawk 1 board. Then I want to read the sensor data with the autopilot and send their values via Mavlink to the ground station or a Datalogger app in the ground station PC.
Is there someone with previous experience with this topic or similar? I would like to know:
- What is the best way to communicate with the sensors I2C or ADC?
- What would be the recommended rate of data acquisition to avoid affecting the performance of the autopilot?
Thank you in advance for your support.
