I have successfully integrated a RPi v3 b+ model to communicate with Pixhawk 2.1 (the cube).
Now I have purchased a Jetson TX2 dev kit and I wish to connect (for now) the entire dev kit to the pixhawk.
(Flashed with Jetpack 3.3)
Initially, since both the RPi and the dev kits both have UART and are both ARM, the setup should be similar however it does not seem to work. (followed the manual precisely except for step “Disable the OS control of the serial port”)
Important: The Jetson, when connected to the pixhawk and powered on, would not load up and constantly reboot. any idea why this is happening?
In addition, I saw that it is possible to flash the TX2 with an APSync image, however, I have a few concerns with this hopefully I could get some answers:
- How does APSync affect the other aspects of the Jetson without the interaction of the Pixhawk? Will it just create the access point and the Jetson behave as though nothing else happened to it?
- Is it possible to disable the access point and data flash loggers? I have an RF device connected to the pixhawk and I just want the TX2 for video processing before sending it to the ground.
Any advice/ help is greatly appreciated!!
