Sonar or LIDAR as obstacle avoidance system

Hello All,

Is it possible to use a sonar or LIDAR as obstacle avoidance system (pointing to the front of the UAV)?
Is it possible with only changing parameters or required firmware changes?

Thank you

Hi Rotem,

It is possible, see here for more details
I think you will need to send custom messages to the vehicle, I think this is the one. For that you will need an on board computer.

You can read additional information here: Help with object avoidance

Hello Matej,

Thank you for your replay,

Do you know about that kind of on-board computer or any other information about it?

Thank you
