Mavlink Connection Nvidia Xavier


We are currently working on a project of drone embedded image processing. We have succesfully connected a Pixhawk Cube 2.1 to our Nvidia Jetson Xavier by Serial port with Mavlink. Now, we need to get the telemetric data such as altitude and speed to program instruction that our Xavier will send depending on what it sees with its camera.
The problem is what should we use : MavProxy ? APSync ? ; and what’s the format of those data : Log file ? Do we get it from APSync ?

If someone has a clue on how we have to proceed, he’s welcomed to orients us.

Thank you very much !


Have you looked at the wiki :

The simplest way to implemente is using dronekit python. Please take note of the new adress:

Oh ! Thank you very much, I was trying to reach the dronekit website, but the address wasn’t working. I’ll check that and be back if something goes wrong !

Have a nice day !
