My version of onboard oled display for arducopter 3.4


(mike kelly) #21

Thank you for your reply Dmitry. I think this is an important feature for everyday use. It is frustrating not to be able to use it since it is working! But I understand it is the holidays and everyone works hard in the Ardupilot community. I hope it will be available soon.

Thank you very much for your efforts!!

I would so love to have this working! I gave up on it myself, months ago… at the moment, I can’t think of anything I’d rather have than this.

I’ve made a holder for .96in blue and yellow display from DIYmall that can be 3D printed. I think they’re pretty much the same dimensions.

I have it mounted on the arm of my copter. Modify as you wish.


(Enrico Mangosio) #24

It would be nice to have some simple test procedure, in the examples directory…


(Dmitry Prokhorov) #25

Hi Enrico, what exactly do you mean as test procedure?


(Dmitry Prokhorov) #26

Here is a little good news :slight_smile: It seems OLED feature has been planned for 3.5.0-rc1 milestone.


(Dmitry Prokhorov) #27

Hello Lance, wouldn’t you mind to publish your OLED holder .stl file on thingiverse.com? Thank you very much for your contribution!


(Lance Brummett) #28

Done :slight_smile:

(Dmitry Prokhorov) #29

It seems today it has been merged into master branch. So waiting it to be included in 3.5.0-rc1

Already have some boards and waiting to use them.

@dipspb, @Alexey_Kozin, thanks very much for the code contribution!

I’ve created a wiki page here: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-display-onboard.html

All feedback welcome!


(Dmitry Prokhorov) #32

@rmackay9 , thank you very much for you assistance and support!

It seems we can make adafruid OLED module (https://www.adafruit.com/product/326) work with this driver.
It is needed to close SJ1/SJ2 jumpers and connect DC/SA0 pin to GND pin as it shown here:

Would you be so kind to check it once more? In case of success we can add this to wiki page.


(rmackay9) #33

Dmitry,
I guess adding that jumper wire makes it use the I2C address of 0x3C? So the screen does come on but it’s almost always displaying just a lot of dots. My guess is that some messages aren’t getting through, perhaps during the initial config… but that’s a guess. Just once the screen did display correctly… it seemed like that was the first time after I added the jumper but of course, that doesn’t make sense.


(rmackay9) #34

We successfully tested the aliexpress screen on the pixracer though by the way. there was no reason to think it wouldn’t work of course.


(Dmitry Prokhorov) #35

Hello Randy,

Thank you for one more attempt with adafruit module. Yes, connection of SA0 pin to GND makes it use the address of 0x3C. Closing of both SJ1/SJ2 is needed to select i2c mode. I’m going to order module from adafruit to resolve the issue.

Regards,
Dmitry

Thanks so much to everyone for making this happen!! Works great for me with 3.5rc1.


(John DeVere) #37

$3 and painless: this will be the #1 must-have on your Pixhawk! (cost me exactly $3 incl shipping on eBay) #WOOB

Only a few minor issues you are probably already aware of… e.g. the sats:70 in the photo. (After displaying a value of 10, then dropping to 7)


(Noircogi) #38

Has this code been merged into the plane firmware yet?


(rmackay9) #39

@devere, ok, I’ve added that the display issue to the to-fix list.

@Noircogi, it was implemented for copter, plane, rover and even antenna tracker all at the same time as copter but I don’t think plane and rover have done a release since then. certainly it’ll be in their next release.
