Re: CF having trouble reciveing over 4 lightouses.

Ha ha, now I saw this post, I already answered in the other one about base stations facing up. Moving the answer here instead. It is not unlikely that it does not work very well (or at all) with more than 4 base stations in the current implementation. It is pretty much untested and this is also one ...

Re: Do not fly

In the lighthouse tab in the client, what is shown for the "receiving" boxes for the two base stations, are they green or red? If they are green, you are receiving sweeps from the base stations. I manually moved the drone and the system appeared to be working. Manually checking the estimated positio...

Re: Receiving and Estimator Problem V2

It sounds like there is some problem receiving the base stations. How long are the base stations green and red? What happens if you hold the Crazyflie up towards one of the base stations so that the other base station is not visible from the Crazyflie? Is that base station stable on green in the cli...

Re: PositionHlCommander Localization system

as far as I understood, the position is set in the init of PositionHlCommander class, but then I see no other function changing it. Will it be automatically updated on a low level at every new send_extpose command? The PositionHlCommander uses the initial position and adds any motion to it to keep ...

Re: [SOLVED] V2 configuration

Great!

Yes, the ID is a unique ID for each base station

Re: V2 configuration

I think the problem might be that your uses needs to be a member of the dialout grouop to access the serial port sudo adduser $USER dialout We have documented this for the LPS Tools (https://github.com/bitcraze/lps-tools/blob/master/readme.md#usb-access-right-on-linux) that also uses the serial port...

Re: Logging frequency

Yes, the SD card should be able to handle 500 Hz. The main limitation for the SD-card is the total data rate. Data is stored in RAM buffers (512 bytes I think) that are written to the SD card when full. If you log faster than can be written to the card, it will be discarded. When you stop logging I ...

Re: Mellinger and PID controllers

Ah, I see. The mellinger is more sensitive to errors in the position estimate and it is mainly useful with a good mocap system. I do not know a lot about the INDI controller, but I don't think it works without some tweaking. I think the PID controller is the best option for the flow deck, it is robu...

Re: V2 configuration

Great dumps, exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks! Unfortunately it looks very much like what I get on my base station so I don't know why it does not work on your setup. I tested on a base station with the exact same FW as your base station and it works, so that does not seem to be the problem. Co...

Re: No show: map

If the position in the "Crazyflie status" is updated continuously my guess is that there is some issue with the 3D rendering since is seems as data is available. Could you tell us a bit more about the system you are using? Are you using a VM or not, python version, client version, python lib version...
