Unstable Seeker after flashing



  • Hi,

    After flashing Seeker with VOXL Platform Release version 3-3-0-0.5.0-a, the drone becomes unstable. For example:

    • for voxl-inspect-qvio the state is often FALSE,
    • in QGC, LOCAL_POSITION_NED is displaying 0 for x and y, and
    • flight modes cannot be changed from manual.

    I wonder if this platform version is compatible with Seeker.

    Best regards,
    Tomi



  • Have you followed the configure cameras and configure extrinsics instructions?



  • I believe configuring extrinsics solved most of the problems. However, the drone is till unstable. I believe, this is due to camera calibration issues. Could you send me the factory calibration files? The serial number is: M2100000ADF



  • The drone is stable now after the factory reset.

    However, the obstacle detection is not working. I have performed all the steps described in the collision preventation documentation. Running voxl-vision-px4 -s shows only 0s, and plotting obstacle detection values in QGC shows constant value of 800.



  • Below is how the data is stored in our factory test system. You'll have to put in the appropriate files on the device
