Anchors not detected at all!

Post by rohan » Sat Aug 24, 2019 10:12 am

I uploaded the latest firmware and assigned IDs to the anchors. However, none of them are getting detected in the "Loco Positioning" tab of the Crazyflie PC client (not even as a red box!). Neither are the anchors being shown in the coordinate frame, although the tag is visible and its movement is also somehow captured, irrespective of whether the anchors are being powered or not.

Looking forward to some tips to fix this issue.

Cheers
Rohan

Hi,
Are you also using the latest Crazyflie firmware?

What mode did you setup the anchors with and what is the status of the 4 LEDs closest to the antenna on the nodes and the 4 LEDs on the LPS deck?

Hi Arnaud,

Apologies for the late reply. I was waiting for an email notification in case there was a reply.

Indeed, the issue was the Crazyflie firmware. I am looking to use Loco Positioning System as a datum for the acoustic positioning system I am developing. So, wasn't paying attention to the carzyflie instructions as I will not be flying it, just piggybacking it on another UAV as a datum with known offset to the acoustic receiver. Thanks for the tip!

Cheers
