1, If I used the PX4Flow in the I2C bus, this would mean that I would be limited to using only 1 sensor.
2, If I wanted to use 5 sensors, for example (1 pointing down, 1 pointing North, South, East, West), for obstacle avoidance, then this would not be possible. Correct?
3, I saw this device:
Would this allow me to run say 5 sensors?
4, The other issue is the software needed to recognise the images of the sensor.
Will I need to run additional software OR will the ArduPilot software, already onboard the EB2, be able to recognise images from the PX4Flow?
5, Also, has your team managed to make use of the px4flow?
Are there any videos of it in use?
- I also saw this product:
Which is a range finder.
Check the video and you will see that it is able to report the distance of the man's hand.
The demo is performed on an Arduino board.
Could this work, as a low cost alternative?
7, I also saw this product, which is cheap.
This looks a lot like the Lidar seen here: http://erlerobotics.com/docs/Artificial_Brains_and_Autopilots/Additional_Devices/Lidar.html
Could this work?
