Pixhawk + PPK

Q&A forumPixhawk + PPK
EarthImage asked 2 weeks ago

Hello, I’m wondering if anyone is using an ArduSimple board in combination with a Pixhawk autopilot for PPK surveys? Just wondering if this is a good solution or if it is to niche. I would love to see an example and some results. I especially want to know if ExtInt is working for time marks.
Thanks, Peter

Hi EarthImager, let’s hope the community can give you some feedback. What we can say is that V3 is better for PPK with timestamps, as it has a filtered input which is more reliable that the default built-in from zed-f9p.

I would love to see you guys provide a working example on how to hookup and successfully use ExtInt to get time marks. Give us drone guys a white paper or a youtube video that shows what a good solution ArduSimple is for ppk mapping using a drone! It is a big market so worth your time, IMHO.

I’m not willing to buy the V3 board as it turns me into a beta tester and I cannot afford that. I first need to be shown that it works.

Thanks EarthImage, message received, we add this to the pipeline of tutorials, seeing the list probably will not be ready before the end of the year.
