Note: Not sure if this is the right spot to post this, but I couldn’t think of where else to post it.
I am trying the see if it is possible to establish bi-directional communication between Ardupilot and an Android Device via the transmitter.
To be more specific, I would like an Android device to have access to the telemetry information(like GPS position of the drone, battery voltage, waypoint status etc) that a compatible transmitter would receive from a drone.
And I would like the Android device to send information (Like waypoints, commands like start mission, stop the mission, return home etc) to the drone via the transmitter.
I know there are several posts on the internet hinting at extracting telemetry info from a transmitter onto an android phone using either Bluetooth or USB serial. But I haven’t seen a step by step tutorial anywhere. Has anyone here managed to achieve this? can you help me get started? or send me some links that I can look at to get started?
As for sending info from an Android Device to the drone via the transmitter, is this even possible?
