Connecting to Wi-Fi



  • Hi,

    So I am working in a research lab with the m500 drone, and the drone won't connect to the Wi-Fi.

    Here's what happened. A former student was working in the lab using the drone. He left, and I joined right after that. He was doing Computer Vision stuff with the drone, so everything should have been set up.

    We have a Wi-Fi router in the lab which the drone is supposed to connect to automatically, and it doesn't. The drone is not in SoftAP mode either, so the only way left for me was to connect to it using the cable (through the blue port for USB-QGroundControl). When the drone is connected to the pc via cable, this is what I see from ADB.

    I'm not sure why the drone wouldn't be visible. Also, another symptom is that the red light on the antenna keeps blinking red (similar to here). Please advise on what I should/can do to connect to the drone.

    @Jae-Park In order to ADB onto VOXL, you will need to plug a Micro USB cable into J8 seen here: https://docs.modalai.com/voxl-hardware-setup/

  • Hi Tom,

    First, thank you for your reply. From the video it seems like I should be using the port here (right under the red&black cables).

    So after connecting the cable, I should be able to use ADB or factory reset, right? Was there a documentation on how to go about resetting the drone settings? Thank you.

    @Jae-Park That is correct. You can use a normal micro-usb cable to connect. You can download the latest System Image from: downloads.modalai.com. The newest release is VOXL Platform Release 3-3-0 0.5.0 a
