I’m looking for some informations about simple objects avoidance.
I need to fly along a wall and want to use a 360 lidar to keep the drone following the wall safely and with a constant distance. I think that the RPLIDAR A2 would a a good choice.
But as the wall to inspect is often bellow the take off spot (take-off on roof), i should have an eye on the real altitude (under the drone). So i would use a second lidar (downward) to get the distance from ground on the telemetry.
My question is : will the second lidar considered by the Pixhawk as avoidance sensor ? (because i saw on arducopter the avoidance page that “Only one proximity sensor source can be enabled, using either a 360 degree lidar or up to 9 rangefinders. While a second proximity sensor appears in the parameters list, it is not currently functional”)
I want to be sure that this configuration works, so if someone had already made a similar setup, i would be please to get infos.
