Will DJI release Prop Guards for M100 platform?
Aqua
@lanyusea
maybe......
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
Hi!
anyone here participating in the International Aerial Robotics Competition?
Aqua
@lanyusea
I was. in last year
I remember there are quit many teams using M100 as their drones this year. The champion and the 2nd runner up in Asia contest.
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
Cool! I competed in north america these past two years with team Polytechnique Montreal
I heard that this year some teams used the matrice at the Asia arena
But I can't find any videos of what happened
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
and the top teams didnt submit papers :(
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@andre-nguyen You can checkout the papers published at iarc at http://www.aerialroboticscompetition.org/symposium2013.php
Almost all the teams have submitted their papers.
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
naw for 2015 Hong Kong didn't submit one
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
oh snap
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
They're not the only ones.
Some teams even didn't show up like Madrid and Tsinghua. Oh well...
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
On another note, I think it would be a great idea if DJI could share PID value for the position and altitude controller. Almost everyone will have to tune these controllers and it's just a grunt work for most part.
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
I've been wondering about that, I did a quick flight test and the m100 flies ridiculously well, does it even use a PID controller?
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
Ofcourse it does. I am talking about pid controllers in case developers want to deploy their own custom rig of lidars and cameras.
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
Hhhmm I remember that the naza m-lite allowed to modify gains in percentages, but the N1 assistant doesn't allow that. Was thinking maybe the N1 had an adaptive controller or something.
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@andre-nguyen Interesting, I wasnt aware of that.
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@lanyusea : I am trying to manipulate the altitude while having a HORI position hold. The controls I want to write is Combination #14 mentioned in Appendix. In combination number 14, the quad does not hold its position for roll and pitch value of 0. It seems a little ambigious from the documentation which specific control_mode_byte allows for position. I tested all control_mode_bytes and only the ones where thrust is not sent as the thrust% seems to be having position control. Having position control while tuning altitude PID makes the process easier. Wasnt sure if this was a common issue so I did not open a new issue and wanted to discuss it out here first
Aqua
@lanyusea
@robnsngh will the 2nd combination suit you?
@robnsngh >In this combination´╝îif all input data is '0', the UAV will brake and hold in a self-balance status at a fixed position.
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@lanyusea : Since I am using my own height measurement sensor + i am flying indoors, I think the most appt control would be vertical thrust. In theory I think I can hack around my way using verticle velocity command but I would prefer thrust command.
Aqua
@lanyusea
@robnsngh did you install Guidance? cause M100 needs the optical flow sensor on Guidance to hold its position.
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@lanyusea I am using a 3D lidar :)
for height and position estimation
Aqua
@lanyusea
@robnsngh em... therefore you need your own logic to stabilize the drone. You are flying M100 in the 'A' mode actually.
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
@lanyusea : i understand. For the tuning purpose I am flying M100 outdoors and I was hoping that HORIZ_POS or HORIZ_VEL control byte will be able to hold the position using the GPS (given the health_flag > 3, which is true in my case) . I dont want M100 to move horizontally while I am changing altitude. If I can somehow lock horizontal positions while writing thrust % to the Z -axis, my tuning process would be much easier, is there somehow we can do that ?
Aqua
@lanyusea
@robnsngh I understood. The only option is combination 2, where you can set x/y 0 and turning z with a horizontal position lock. But the problem is what we talked before, no thrust%, only z velocity
rocketsingh
@robnsngh
Thanks ! I assume the Z velocity is computed using onboard barometer (if guidance is unavailable). And indoors, this command might be erroneous since M100's reported Z velocity will change due to changing surroundings. But more or less, it should be still possible to use this way of controlling the altitude since I am using an external sensor to measure and close loop ?
Aqua
@lanyusea
@robnsngh yes possible.

Is there some kind of dji simulator (e.g. in Gazebo) which can be used for development?
Aqua
@lanyusea
@andre-nguyen there is a trivial DJI simulator https://developer.dji.com/onboard-sdk/downloads/ there will be a gazebo or a packed rviz simulator, in about one or two months I guess.
Andre Nguyen
@andre-nguyen
nice! if we're interested in contributing to the development of the simulator is there somewhere we can join in? Will be nice to have this up for the dji challenge
SandW
@SandW
does the onboard sdk ignore the fly area restriction´╝č
Francesco
@Francesco325246247
hello, maybe it is a silly question but I am confused the " DJI developer flight platform* " it is something else than a standard DJI3 ?
Aqua
@lanyusea
@SandW no
@Francesco325246247 only Matrice100 can use Onboard SDK
Francesco
@Francesco325246247
@lanyusea thanks a lot mate :)

@crisb-DUT
Can I use Onboard SDK in the A3 controller?
Aqua
@lanyusea
yes. related document will be updated this week

Hi, a group of friends and I want to be able to control the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ using a hand gesture program. We already have a working hand gesture program; however, we are having trouble converting those euler points into a signal the remote can read. We were thinking of essentially tricking the remote into thinking the analog sticks are moving but in reality it's the position of our hands that are moving. Any suggestions? Thank you!
Aqua
@lanyusea
please refer to the Mobile SDK document
Oricalworks
@OricalWorksINC
Please Release onboard SDKs for DJI NAZA M v2 for people with less money or students.
Aqua
@lanyusea
@OricalWorksINC cannot, because of hardware limitation. students can apply for the education discount of M100
Oricalworks
@OricalWorksINC
how can i appy for the student discount for the m100
Aqua
@lanyusea
@OricalWorksINC please contact dev@dji.com

@andre-nguyen
Hey @lanyusea, have you ever seen a problem where having the Manifold too close to the Gps module jams the gps signal?
