Missing log blocking connection initialization

Post by greensebastian » Mon Mar 18, 2019 3:46 pm

Hi!

I've been trying to set up a system to connect to multiple crazyflies in sequence using the same radio, but sometimes the connection between the python api and the crazyflie does not initiate properly. Restarting the crazyflie and retrying always works, however is not really practical when using a larger swarm.

I have found a temporary fix in sending a CMD_RESET_LOGGING (channel 1 cmd 5) package to the crazyflie and closing/opening the link after a certain timeout period, however this causes the connection sequence in the python api to fall out of sync and produce an error as the TOC indexing seems to rely on threads and callbacks to initiate communication. I've added the relevant pieces of code and the console debug output below.

I want to be able to interrupt the connection sequence, reset all logging on the crazyflie (and perhaps also in the python library?) and retry, but i cant seem to find an entry point or callback in the lib that is suitable.

The "Error no LogEntry to handle id=1" error keeps repeating until a CMD_RESET_LOGGING command is sent, or the crazyflie is restarted.

Should also note that this error has occured both on the first crazyflie and on subsequent ones, however the frequency seems to increase the more connections are running simultaneously.

Is this something anyone has encountered before, and/or is there some part of the connecting/disconnecting sequence that I'm getting wrong?

Code: Select all

    @staticmethod
    def ext_open_link_cf(scf, timeout=3, retries=5):
        cf = scf.cf
        tries = 0
        while tries < retries and cf.is_connected() is not True:
            tries = tries + 1
            print('Connection attempt ' + str(tries) + ' for ' + scf._link_uri)
            thread = Thread(target=partial(cf.open_link, scf._link_uri))
            thread.start()
            if timeout > 0:
                timestep = 0.1
                steps = timeout/timestep
                for i in range(int(steps)):
                    time.sleep(timestep)
                    if cf.is_connected():
                        break
            else:
                thread.join()

            if cf.is_connected():
                scf._is_link_open = True
                return
            else:
                CFUtil.reset_logging(scf)
                cf.close_link()
                scf._is_link_open = False
                print('Connection attempt failed...')

    @staticmethod
    def reset_logging(scf):
        """Reset onboard logging for this Crazyflie"""
        print('Resetting onboard log settings for: ' + scf.cf.link_uri)
        CHAN_SETTINGS = 1
        CMD_RESET_LOGGING = 5
        if scf.cf.link is not None:
            pk = CRTPPacket()
            pk.set_header(5, CHAN_SETTINGS)
            pk.data = (CMD_RESET_LOGGING,)
            scf.cf.send_packet(pk)
