In the event of unexpected behavior you can always use the RC to take over control. Search everywhere only in this topic. Creating a Georeferenced Image Creating a georeferenced image with e. Using these services, in some situations the velocity measurements read from the Ascte receiver, which are then used for the internal data fusion and position control, can be way off, which results in the vehicle shooting away.

Best, Jos On 26 August However, after analyzing the problem further we found out that the u-blox GPS receivers used on the AscTec Hummingbird and AscTec Pelican can get in trouble when using SBAS services, which have been cleared for regular operation earlier this year. Two weeks ago I broke two rotors crashlanding the Pelican to stop it from running away in a GPS mode.

You can now load the image into the AutoPilot Control software. It is highly recommended to perform a motor controller update with the Research Upgrade Tool after all IDs have been assigned properly. Google Maps is quite easy. Hello there, thanks a lot for the information about the unusual behavior in GPS mode. Free forum by Nabble.

Identical behavior has been been observed here on multiple occasions. We will then inform you mabual our homepage about possibilities how to get the update.

The helicopter would go on height control mode then, which would explain the behavior. In reply to this post by kjackson. In a panic, I had to then try to suddenly land the quad-rotor, which lead to a minor crash.


Expand all Collapse all. My question is, what kind of filtering if any is being done by autopilot, to smooth out the GPS signals. Now you need to georeference the image, therefore, we need the GPS position of the upper left corner and the lower right corner of the image.

In case you exchanged a motor controller you may need to assign the correct ID to it according to its position. This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. It was never intended to be used with the camera mount option aautopilot. In reply to this post by kjackson Hi there.

Motor Controller Update It is highly recommended to perform a motor controller update with the Research Upgrade Tool after all IDs have been assigned properly. Open your favourite image manipulation program e. Skip to end of metadata. Connect your flight system as described above and click on “System Info” in the menu bar. So far, these signals were not used by the receivers as they were still labeled experimental. Yesterday we flew the Pelican in GPS mode, and after a few minutes of stable flight, all of a sudden it started going in a direction, even when i took my hands off the RC controller.

In the new “System Info” window autpilot on “Update Information”. The window also displays further information, like your current software version of the low-level and high-level processor.

If your UAV is new, this is our default connection and you do not need to change anything. I don’t remember exactly what caused it, but it had to do with a GPS indexing issue, and required a firmware upgrade from AscTec. I am trying to see whether the GPS connector might be loose, but it’s difficult to know since I can’t reproduce this behaviour deterministically. Find the following lines: Go back to Google Maps and click on the locations where the corners of your cropped image are.


In the upper left appears a box with information of the vicinity where you clicked and the GPS coordinates e. Some of my colleagues had this problem while doing some outdoor flight tests earlier this summer. Do not use a “final waypoint” with a height of 0m for landing. The number is the serial number you were autopllot for.

From what I understand, GPS location can occasionally jump s of meters.

GPS mode behavior

For this example we will name it “example. You should now see all the status information of the UAV In the “Packets” field you may select to receive more info packets e. In this case, the safety pilot can always recover by switching to majual controlled or manual mode, but we understand that this behavior needs to be prevented in the first place. This description referes to Windows and Irfan View You may choose autopilt crop the image to remove the window menus and the Google Maps overlays.

Do not worry, your camera mount option 4 is not broken, you can control it by using the AscTec SDK and writing your own code. On the top left of the window there is now something like “AutoPilot LowLevel “. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained. Saturday, August 27, Does Pelican autopilot do any kind of flitering to mitigate this problem?
