This video explains how to connect Erle-Brain (or any of the vehicles powered by our robotics brain) to APM Planner 2.0 via WiFi. The same can be done through other connection types:
WiFi (as a hotspot): this is the way delivered by the Erle Robotics team)
WiFi (infraestructure mode): the usual way of connecting to the Internet with our devices, through a router. You'll need to know the IP of your brain/vehicle to set up the GCS properly.
Ethernet-over-USB: Erle-Brain includes a mini-USB client port (picture) that allows us to get a wired connection to the robotics brain. In the images we provide the
g_ether kernel module is loaded by default so once you connect a mini-USB cable, a new network interface should appear in your computer. Erle-Brain has by default the
192.168.7.2 IP address. A simple way of connecting through SSH with Ethernet-over-USB over Mac OS is:
# assuming a new en7 network interface appeared
sudo ifconfig en7 192.168.7.1
Ethernet (exposed in Erle-Brain)
There's other ways of doing so (TCP/IP over Bluetooth, ...). It's a Linux computer after all.
