Connect m500 to PX4
SSH into VOXL
The VOXL’s IP address by default is
192.168.8.1. SSH into VOXL using the
root user with password
More details available at the VOXL SSH quickstart page.
VOXL needs to know the IP address of your computer running qGroundControl. This is set in the ‘qgc_ip’ field of the
/etc/modalai/voxl-vision-px4.conf file on VOXL. This will inform the
voxl-vision-px4 systemd service to send MAVLink data to our computer.
Run the following command and update the
qgc_ip field to match your computer’s IP.
yocto:/home/root# vi /etc/modalai/voxl-vision-px4.conf
i to enter edit mode, use arrow keys to navigate to the
qgc_ip field and edit there. To save, hit
:wq to write and quit.
If you put VOXL on your own WiFi or LTE network you will have to do the same procedure.
For more information on this config file and the options available see the VOXL Vision PX4 manual.
Restart the voxl-vision-px4 Service
To reset the
voxl-vision-px4 service and reload the configuration, run the following command:
yocto:/home/root# systemctl restart voxl-vision-px4
Note this will also reset the Visual Inertial Odometry (VIO) algorithm and reset VIO’s origin to wherever the drone is when you reset the service.
Connect m500 to QGroundControl
Confirm Connection with QGroundControl
After the previous step is completed, the vehicle should automatically connect to QGroundControl
