I have a Ping1D that I’m trying to get working through a Jetson Nano connected to the surface control station using a 2.4GHz DDL. So far, I’ve found it pretty easy to get the Ping working through the standard RPi companion set up, and was able to modify the companion to connect to the control station via wireless, so everything’s good to go… except my understanding of how the companion works and my general coding knowledge.
- I’ve tried to install the associated ping code on the Jetson, but I don’t see how to tell it send its data over UDP. How does companion do this?
- Right now it seems the Ping is not even recognized by the Jetson. I get power to the BLUART, but no signal flash. It shows up as ttyUSB*. Could I be missing a driver for the BLUART? Would it just be easier if I connect via serial?
- Does companion power up the Ping on boot? If so, is there a way to switch it on and off to conserve energy?
I’m confident I’ll get this working soon with a little help. Thanks in advance!
