Usually, I use the sysid_thismav parameter to identify vehicles. The documentation says the range is 1-255. However, I would like to uniquely identify more than 255 vehicles.
How could I uniquely identify more than 255 vehicles?
Obs: I don’t want to do a light show with hundreds of quads; it’s simpler. I would like to inventory logs of hundreds of quads and their flight details.
A little digression:
Looking at the code itself, it really is a uint8_t, although, at some points, it is already an int16_t as in the Parameters.h file. I don’t imagine that simply proposing to change the type in a pull request is simple. I mean that because, in a very superficial review, it was already possible to find conflicts even outside the vehicle code, arriving at the mavlink itself (mav_types.h).
