A PyQt question for the Client

Hi all! I am writing a new tab for the lighthouse system, very much like the current qualisys tab. Currently learning PyQt and was wondering if anyone could explain to me what the 'notify' argument does in this pyqtProperty decorator? I have taken it out and the cfstatus seems to update the GUI just...

Re: One drone following another drone.

I think the three options are similar in performance but the last one is easier to implement and debug. To be clear, you think the positionalHLcommander is easier to implement and debug or sending setpoints to the PID? If it is the latter then yes I would love to see the scripts for inspirartion. C...

Re: One drone following another drone.

Great! Thanks.

Any appreciable difference in performance (ie latency or stability) between these three options?

Cheers

Re: One drone following another drone.

HI Kimberly, I also just got back on the 4th. I managed to get my hack working. The drone is only stable if it is following the stateestimate of one axis at a time. eg: pc.go_to(0, 0, set_point_z) Any way to make this more stable in all thee axes? Also. Yes I would love some more tips from Kristoffe...

My first hack at this was to start a second context manager to activate the 2nd drone but the 2nd co...

Re: Inverted X and Y geometry data [SOLVED]

So the Lighthouses were mounted upside down (ie hanging down from the ceiling). In the past this has not been a problem because I was running the drones through the HTC software.

Thanks again for all of your help.
