Two usb cameras

(Nikos Maurommatis) #1

Hi everybody,

I have recently bought the “low light USB camera” and when I plug it in BR2 the ground station screen switch immediately to the new camera. First question: how BR2 understand the new camera and shows picture from it and not from the old camera? Second question: is it possible to have two usb cameras on raspberry pi and switch the screen of ground station between them?

Hi Nikos,

The startup script for the cameras is able to detect what type of camera is attached (between the Raspberry Pi camera and the USB Camera) and start the appropriate one. I believe the USB camera is prioritized if both cameras are attached at the same time.

We don’t have support for multiple cameras streaming to QGC yet, but this is something we’re working on! It will be available in a future software update.

No, there is no development yet. You may check on github for updates on features and bugfixes (look at the issues tab) and new releases/updates (check the releases tab).
