I am trying to make an obstacle avoidance drone with a nano radar.The exact specifications of the radar are as followed:
77GHZ Nano Radar
And the flight Controller is the Pixhawk Cube Orange Plus
In the documentation it says to change the telem2 protocol to the Lidar360(serial2_protocol=11) option which I did.Also,it says to set proximity type as Tera Range Tower it(PRX1_Type=3)The problem I am facing is as followed:
I do know the nano radar is working as I am recieving data on a TTL USB connected to Serial Plotter on PC.
If anyone can help in this issue that would be great.
When you buy mr72 radar have requested OEM to change the firmware to work with ardupilot flight controllers, generally normal MR72 doesn’t work with pixhawk as plug and play…radar firmware need to change.
If that also done have you powered radar by isolate Power supply from external source not from flight controller itself.
Got the Nano Radar working.The protocol is UART as before,not CAN.My mistake.But the bad proximity error still remains.Probably just a loose wire or the power reaching the nano radar is less than 12V.
I didn’t, the module I received was in the UART protocol. This module comes in two versions, one that has CAN protocol and another with UART protocol. It can be changed by opening the casing and rewiring the connections however no datasheet is available so I would strongly suggest against it.I have yet to do some testing on my own of rewiring it.
