LPS settup

Post by curiositycat » Wed Jul 15, 2020 12:36 am

Hello,

I apologize if this is a silly question I am very new to the crazyflie environment and the LPS nodes.
So I set up the crazyflie VM and now I am a bit stuck setting up the LPS nodes. I was trying to follow these steps:
https://www.bitcraze.io/documentation/t ... ng-system/

I am on the tools step and I set up everything up to the USB access. So since I am running the VM which is Linux on a computer running linux I can just skip the follow steps right? Cause the setup for windows and mac do not apply.
So if yes how do I launch the LPS-tools for the setup of the nodes?

Hi!

Have you followed these readme instructions as well ?

If you can not find the lps-tools repository, You should probably git clone the lps-tools project in the projects folder on the VM and then follow the running instructions in the readme instuctions.

btw I'm moving this thread to the LPS group

Hello!

Thank you for your reply!
So Yes I have looked at those two links and I have the LPS tools cloned. I apologize if this is extremely trivial. But how do I launch the tools?
I already have the USB access on Linux set up with the 99-lps.rules.

[So according to the running instructions on the readme file.
you would first need to install it by running this from the lps-tools folder

Code: Select all

pip3 install -e .
make sure that you have the python package pyqt5 installed as well.

And then you run the following command from the same folder:

Code: Select all

python3 -m lpstools
