I discovered that the dataflash log Auto Analysis report includes a report on Optical Flow parameters: FLOW_FXSCALER and FLOW_FYSCALER.
The report also says it saves these parameters in a “params” file, and saves charts for these in a PDF file. I couldn’t locate these files.
I’ve been through the optical flow calibration process per the docs - and it’s a nuisance. If the values reported in the Auto Analysis report are reliable, that would be a really wonderful thing.
When I ran Auto Analysis on some of my calibration BIN files, some failed to report good Optical Flow data - particularly the calibration BIN files for the “x” axis tests.
I performed a new calibration BIN file by doing both X and Y axis calibrations. Below is the text from the Auto Analysis report, a screen shot, and the BIN file.
Any suggestions about using the FLOW_FYSCALER and FLOW_FXSCALER values reported?
Also - the Auto Analysis report also reports “1STD” for the two scaler params. I’m wondering if that’s a standard deviation report for the data of some sort.
Thank you for your input!
AUTO ANALYSIS TEXT SPECIFIC TO OPTICAL FLOW:
Test: OpticalFlow = GOOD - Set FLOW_FXSCALER to -55
Set FLOW_FYSCALER to 94
Cal plots saved to flow_calibration.pdf
Cal parameters saved to flow_calibration.param
FLOW_FXSCALER 1STD = 3
FLOW_FYSCALER 1STD = 23
