Auterion Enterprise PX4 2.2.2

AuterionOS

  • Fix sudo command for auterion user (development workflow)
  • Fix issue when using ssh as the auterion user. In a very specific corner case the /home/auterion directory was missing.

APX4

  • Fix "switching between different protocols" bug on DSM input
  • Fix fault bit numbering for MAVLink battery status messages
  • Make parameters for Fixed Wing Position Control more clear by providing more feedback
  • Add option for vendor version string to be added to logs
  • Fix bad yaw detection to now actually trigger yaw recovery
  • Disable Nuttx networking to harden against malformed ethernet packets
  • Enable autotune also on RTPS builds

Auterion Enterprise PX4 2.2.0

AuterionOS

New Features

  • New Auterion developer workflow
  • Microhard pairing preconfigured with skynode
  • Trillium HD40LV
    • Point of Interest support
    • Improvements for manual modes
    • Logging/detection improvements: Log software and hardware versions, detect when sightline tracking board is not connected
    • Send tracking status back to AMC to be displayed on the Fly view
    • Support for center gimbal command from AMC
  • Modem Configuration: automatically detect APN
  • Skynode Configuration/Developer Webpage:
    • expose more system information (performance, versions, partitions, network, etc)
    • button to generate diagnostic report
  • AuterionOS: split into development and production images
  • Option to fully disable Wifi or LTE using the Auterion Developer Workflow

Improvements

  • Cloud Simulation: fix several video streaming stability and connectivity issues
  • Update mechanism: add custom application update support in local-updater
  • Sony A7R: several video stability improvements
  • Photo gallery: download photo preview when it is taken and then download the high resolution version only when the user selects the photo
  • Developer Workflow: new mavlink endpoints exposed for development
  • Pairing: show vehicle serial number to distinguish between multiple vehicles
  • Pairing: add new state to improve stability
  • New setting to enable internet routing over ethernet

Bugfixes

  • Silvus Datalink:
    • solve issues where the stored configuration on skynode was not updated during pairing
    • fix how radio parameters are stored in the radio’s flash storage
  • Fix issue where Skynode’s SDCard was not properly mounted at boot causing the SDCard to get corrupted in a very specific condition
  • Trillium HD40LV: fix gimbal feedback to AMC. The gimbal orientation displayed in AMC had an offset in yaw

APX4

New Features

  • Autotuning for Multirotors
  • Orbit mode in fixed wing (VTOL)
  • Custom action waypoints: add functionality to trigger custom actions at waypoints
  • Auto-detect mag orientation during calibration
  • Warn pilot if strong magnetic interference present at takeoff
  • VTOL flight path improvements for windy conditions
  • For long flights, estimate baro bias changes using GPS altitude

Improvements

  • TECS rewrite for more robust fixed wing altitude/airspeed control
  • Airspeed estimation accuracy improvements
  • Dual GPS fallback logic added
  • DSM R/C input handling more robust
  • Manual control now also available during VTOL transition
  • Smooth yaw control enabled in orbit mode
  • Automatically move gimbal to neutral position after mission to prevent lens damage
  • If ESC telemetry available, check for motor stuck at arming

Bugfixes

  • Fix 5s drift after stick release in position mode
  • Yaw setpoint changes during takeoff now correctly handled
  • Fix yaw-recovery in cases of high accel noise
  • Fix joystick initialization which could lead to false RC override triggering
