Mavlink


For information on the MAVlink communication protocol click here.

This package supports Mavlink over serial (such as a SiK modem) and Mavlink over UDP (such as via mavproxy). Serial is useful for point to point links, and UDP is useful for where you have multiple simultaneous clients such as the robot and QGroundControl.

As at 2017-04, this package supports Mavlink 1.0 only. If the robot doesn't receiving data then check that the other devices are configured to send version 1.0 frames.

How to Install

go get -d -u gobot.io/x/gobot/... && go install gobot.io/x/gobot/platforms/mavlink

How to Use

package main

import (
        "fmt"

        "gobot.io/x/gobot"
        "gobot.io/x/gobot/platforms/mavlink"
        common "gobot.io/x/gobot/platforms/mavlink/common"
)

func main() {
        adaptor := mavlink.NewAdaptor("/dev/ttyACM0")
        iris := mavlink.NewDriver(adaptor)

        work := func() {
                gobot.Once(iris.Event("packet"), func(data interface{}) {
                        packet := data.(*common.MAVLinkPacket)

                        dataStream := common.NewRequestDataStream(100,
                                packet.SystemID,
                                packet.ComponentID,
                                4,
                                1,
                        )
                        iris.SendPacket(common.CraftMAVLinkPacket(packet.SystemID,
                                packet.ComponentID,
                                dataStream,
                        ))
                })

                gobot.On(iris.Event("message"), func(data interface{}) {
                        if data.(common.MAVLinkMessage).Id() == 30 {
                                message := data.(*common.Attitude)
                                fmt.Println("Attitude")
                                fmt.Println("TIME_BOOT_MS", message.TIME_BOOT_MS)
                                fmt.Println("ROLL", message.ROLL)
                                fmt.Println("PITCH", message.PITCH)
                                fmt.Println("YAW", message.YAW)
                                fmt.Println("ROLLSPEED", message.ROLLSPEED)
                                fmt.Println("PITCHSPEED", message.PITCHSPEED)
                                fmt.Println("YAWSPEED", message.YAWSPEED)
                                fmt.Println("")
                        }
                })
        }

        robot := gobot.NewRobot("mavBot",
                []gobot.Connection{adaptor},
                []gobot.Device{iris},
                work,
        )

        robot.Start()
}

How to use: UDP

::: go
	adaptor := mavlink.NewUDPAdaptor(":14550")

To test, install Mavproxy and set it up to listen on serial and repeat over UDP:

$ mavproxy.py --out=udpbcast:192.168.0.255:14550

Change the address to the broadcast address of your subnet.
