Px4 avoidance implementation

#1

Hello

I am using Intel Aero RTF drone, on it implementing the Px4 avoidance library.

I have implemented the library, before flying i also want to know that I need to attach the lidar as well for the avoidance library or inbuilt camera of the Intel is enough for implementing the collision avoidance library.

Thanks

I assume that with “lidar” you mean a downward facing distance sensor right? You do not strictly need it for flying obstacle avoidance, but in that case you need to make sure you always fly at least 2m above ground, otherwise the OA algorithm will detect the ground as an obstacle and try to avoid it sideways.

Thanks for the response.

Ok then I will try it with the camera only
