Thanks to Pixhawk, I was able to finish to develop a swarming flight system for aerial choreography.
Specially, I created new scenario for X-mas ~~
Special version for X maxs:
I hope to contribute some codes which I develop for the system like RTK-GPS driver. However I don’t know where to put the driver code. in GPS driver? or other ?
Great!!! How did you do that? How did you control the flight sequence?
Thank you for your interest.
I used px4 to make drones and I use a laptop computer to control drones.
For the flight sequence, I use the reserved scenario.
Hello, amazing work!
A question about technical aspects: have you used GPS Rtk for precise positioning and “standard” mission or a local position estimation referred to a GPS position?
I have used RTK-GPS and use offboard mode for the swarm flight.
Thanks for sharing this amazing work. I have few questions.
- Can you share the drone components you used?
- Did you use position or velocity control in OFFBOARD mode?
- Most importantly, what is your communication architecture ? How are all drones communicating with the ground station?
- Are you using ROS?
Thanks in advance.
@stmoon Very cool! We’re currently integrating different higher-end RTK solutions - I assume you have you seen this entry-level RTK solution?
Unfortunately, when I developed this system a few years ago, I didn’t see the entry-level solution.
However, if you need my contribution , I’m always ready to contribute it in case of the RTK-GPS
Sorry for too late reply.
Can you share the drone components you used?
–> Actually, I transfer the technology to one company. So I cannot share entire system. However I’m contributing minor system.
Did you use position or velocity control in OFFBOARD mode?
Most importantly, what is your communication architecture ? How are all drones communicating with the ground station?
–> I just used WiFi. very simple but I reduced the amount of the communication to cover all drones. Now the amount of communication is almost constant even though the number of drone is increased.
Are you using ROS?
–> Not yet
Thanks @stmoon. What type of communication hardware are you using and what range do you get?
Hi, I just use WiFi. (Digi Wifi module)
