Having problem to get "3D Fix" using the marvelmind's "Starter Set NIA-SmallDrone" with a paired super-beacon

Post by jungx148 »

I am currently working on setting up an indoor GPS system using Marvelmind super-beacon for the PX4 (v.1.10.2) based Pixhawk 2.1 Cube.
I followed all the formal documents offered by Marvelmind, but never succeeded yet to get the 3D fix on QGC (v4.0.0).

I already succeeded in setting up a single beacon configuration and got data using ROS through both C++ and Python codes.
I succeeded in setting up a paired beacons configuration as well.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

Hello,

For using paired beacons with PX4 you will need to update to latest version of software (6.240) and purchase a license for UBX (U-Blox) protocol support:
https://marvelmind.com/product/mmsw0003/
With this license you will be able to enable UBX protocol output from mobile beacon, which is required by PX4.
