Software on companion computer : Companion version 0.0.17
Software on topside: Qgroundcontrol Development HEAD 2019-09-30
Here is what I have going:
- Uncommented a line in /companion/.companion.rc to enable Ping1D as a range finder
- SSH’ed into the companion computer and attached to the screen “pingmav”, messages constantly updating distance and confidence are scrolling over the screen.
- Added DistanceSensor,Down in “values screen” on Qgroundcontrol
I’m now pretty sure that the pixhawk get updated data via mavlink message #132 DISTANCE_SENSOR (from the ping1d_mavlink_driver.py file)
The problem is that Qgroundcontrol don’t seems to get this value.
I guess that I have to tweak the mavproxy settings on the companion computer as well to get this working ?
Any ideas ?
