I would be please to get some advise about parameters setting for Simple Object avoidance.
I need to use a drone to follow building walls without hitting them. Because of some holes and or windows on this buildings, i choose a 360 lidar ref RPLIDAR A2 (to be able to detect the windows borders when aligned with a hole)
I already configured the Pixhawk to use the Lidar and have some questions about advanced features :
How can i define a specific detection area ?
I saw on this page of the Wiki that the 360 area could be divided in 8 sectors and that these sectors could be used or ignored by the drone. In my case i would be please to use only the 135 degrees front sector (sector 1+2+8) but i can not find how to deactivate the not needed ones.
Can we define the range detection manually in the parameters ?
In other words, can we exclude objects detections in a specific distance from the lidar? to avoid detecting a GPS mast or something like that (very close to the lidar) eg: i want to detect dangers from 1m to 5m.
Thank you in advance !
