Description

Summary:

  • The license allows a mobile Super-Beacon to stream out data using UBX (u-Blox) protocol. It is used for PixHawk with PX4 stack
  • The license also allows substituting u-Blox compass that may not work indoor with a signal from the Paired Beacons. The PixHawk will believe that it is getting direction data from u-Blox compass via I2C
  • Works with the Paired Beacons configuration for Location+Direction in NIA. See more about the Paired Beacons:
  • Only Super-Beacons are supported
  • See more about the license and integration with PixHawk: https://marvelmind.com/pics/marvelmind_px4_integration.pdf
  • Check out the Drones page: https://marvelmind.com/drones/

Pricing:

  • Per streaming beacon
  • Perpetual license
  • No need to activate again with the next Marvelmind SW pack upgrade

To order:

  • Pay for the feature (via PayPal or other methods)
  • Order the feature via the Dashboard by providing beacon’s CPU ID or send us email with the beacon’s CPU ID
  • We will generate the license key and send to you via email
  • Place the license key into Dashboard/Licenses folder
  • The features becomes activated in the Dashboard

If I have a swarm (100~500 indoor drone show), can your system support?

We support up to 250 beacons (stationary + mobile combined:

However, in the Inverse Architecture the mobile beacon on the drone is receiving ultrasound. It is suitable for robots, forklifts, people, but not for the noisy drones. They would limit the distance of tracking drastically – instead of 30m in each submap to just 3-5 meters – depending on the noisiness of the drones. We have special options – like noise shields, etc. – they can be applied with some additional requirements to your system. But, in general IA is not recommended for drones – only for “quiet mobile objects”.

We have MF NIA for drones. But the location update rate per drone would be about 8*5/N (Hz) per drone. So, for example, for 1 drone that would be 8Hz, for 5 drones – still 8Hz/drone. For 10 drones – 4Hz/drone. For 100 drones => 0.4Hz drone.

Does it only work in Paired Beacons configuration?

Yes, for location data, it would work with a single mobile beacon as well. But, of course, without a Paired Beacons you would lose the direction data.
