Hardware in the loop simulation

I want to do hardware in the loop(HITL) simulation in JMAVSim (by sending command from QGroundControl) but we have only two hardware RaspberryPi and Pixhawk 2.4.8.

1.During calibration through QGroundControl I was stuck in radio calibration because I don’t have radio element.Can I do without radio elemen ?

2.Can we do HITL without other hardware(like motor ,ESC and other external sencer)?

  1. Yes, you can try using joystick. Just plug it in and it should be fine.
  2. I think you could but why not do SITL instead if you don’t need the hardware

Thanks for your reply.
Can we use any software instead of joystick.

I’m not too sure but you can try. QGC recognised the inputs from a software I was using to merge two joysticks into one.

BTW jmavsim does have keyboard inputs jMAVSim/src/me/drton/jmavsim/Simulator.java at a5b0f1f0896c9372c62222e88117c6ced2c6282b Β· PX4/jMAVSim Β· GitHub
