I’m new and newbie about ardupilot framework.
I have a Navio2 and Raspberry PI4 connected toghether.
I already configured SSH, wifi on the raspberry and I can log in without any issue.
I can start the ardupilot service with the “sudo emlidtool ardupilot” command without any issue.
Now I want to establish UART communication, in particular with MAVlink protocol.
I followed this guide and I also enabled serial port.
I installed the MAVProxy files following this guide
But when I try to launch the command to test the mavproxy communication I get the errors in the picture attached.
Also I’m not understanding which command should I send: in the wiki says “python3 mavproxy.py --master=/dev/serial0 --baudrate 921600 --aircraft MyCopter” but in the picture says a different command “mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyAMA0 --baudrate 57600 --aircraft MyCopter”.
I’m not understanding what is the right command. Could some one explain?
What do you get when you run the command
thanks for the reply. With the command I get this answer (picture below)
@marc095 I think I have reproduced the problem
You may or may not have to do this, I am not sure, but it worked for me after the following (I’m running slackware linux, not a pi4). Someone with more knowledge about this particular system may want to chime in
pip3 install PyYAML mavproxy --user
First you should read the navio2 docs over at emlid.com. Reading generic information will not help you here.
For your problem, start with this page:
Since ardupilot is running as a exectable on the Raspberry Pi and the Raspberry Pi is the companion computer at the same time, connecting through a UART connection will not work.
If you want to connect mavproxy to the arducopter executable, you need to set telemetry option -A to udp:127.0.0.1:14550 and start mavproxy with --master=udp:127.0.0.1:14550
unfortunatly the command does not help
I followed the docs and I configured /etc/default/arducopter with:
for the moment the other parts are commented out
then when issuing command
mavproxy.py --master 127.0.0.1:14550 --out :14500
it says link1 down.
Trying to ping from external pc to the raspberry PI it’s all ok. But cannot ping viceversa. I don’t believe it’s normal behaviour. Trying to ping google from PI it’s all ok
If you entered everything as you wrote in your post, it is no wonder it does not work.
There is a " in the telemetry option line and no IP address. The IP address should be 127.0.0.1 (localhost).
The --out with just a port number also makes no sense and there is no --out required to test the connection between mavproxy and ardupilot.
There is a equal = missing after --master and also the protocol specification udp:.
Here is my file
and here is the command
The link is still down but at least the connection with missionPlanner of windows is working
You are not sending any data to 127.0.0.1:14550, so mavproxy can not pick up any mavlink stream.
One purpose of mavproxy is to send telemetry streams to different endpoints. So if your GCS PC has the IP 192.168.1.25 you can setup your telemetry -A option with 127.0.0.1:14550
and mavproxy with
to send telemetry to all devices on your network.
Ah ok thanks. Now it’s a bit more clear
