Hi Team. I am trying to link up a LIDAR Lite v3 with a Pixhawk 2.1, either thru I2C or PWM. - and the LIDAR is not communicating with the PIXHAWK.
At the moment I am going for PWM and I know thru a scope and readout that the LIDAR itself is on and working fine. I have everything set up per this document - http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-rangefinder-lidarlite.html
Setting the following parameters:
- [RNGFND1_TYPE] = 5 “PWM”
- [RNGFND1_PIN] = 54 “AUX5” (if using 4.0.0 or higher any Auxiliary output may be used)
- [RNGFND1_MAX_CM] = 3500
- [RNGFND1_MIN_CM] = 20
- [RNGFND1_SCALING] = 1
- [RNGFND1_OFFSET] = 0
- [BRD_PWM_COUNT] = 4
And I am getting no readouts in Mission Planner for the LIDAR. Is there anyone out there that has done this and can help? What am I doing wrong?
I have heard I need different drivers? Sorry I am new to this but happy to give any/all info that you may need to help solve this problem. Any help is much appreciated.
