Community Q&A

  • @Jacob_Crabill: Status of Navigator, Commander state machine improvements. He’s interested to investigate certain options in a smaller internal feature space.

    @Roman working on making Navigator unit-testable, have all states initialized consistently.

    State Machine Options (Library, Framework, Generator, Compiler, etc) · Issue #10584 · PX4/PX4-Autopilot · GitHub was conducted more than a year ago, is it up to date?

    The important design goal is to have each mode completely separate and the possibility to modularly choose build time and manage in the state machine based on what’s available and the feedback of feasability.

    @JulianOes working on remote control input routing improvements. The tricky part he’s at right now is mode initialization depending on if there is an RC switch or the mode was commanded through MAVLink externally.
    The source of the mode switch MAVLink/RC is less important than the actual situation and mode so sending the event what the user currently want to the state machine and having the logic deal with the right modes in the right situation should work. There will be more corner cases we didn’t discuss yet.
