Rover inside a building

Hi everyone,

I would like to create a rover for a school project, but it need to work inside a building (meaning it can’t depend on a GPS to locate itself). I intend to use a pixhawk with mavlink communication and mission planner. Is it possible to add a wheel encoder, a movement sensor (like the one on a pc mouse) or any other sensor that would help to track the movement and determine the position of the rover (I’m open to suggestion)

Thanks a lot,


None of those are supported at the moment but your could certainly add some code to support that.
Optical flow seems to be the flavour of the month for this sort of thing and I know some drivers are being worked on for ArduPilot on Linux. Have a search and see what you can find.
Thanks, Grant.
