Activate Navio2 Antenna Tracker


(Barry Bolton) #1

Good day.

I followed your build guide and made an antenna tracker build

“pi@navio:~/ardupilot/build/navio2/AntennaTracker”

So my question is how do I now enter GCS UDP IP adress and how do i activate it via Emlidtool?

Hi @Barry_Bolton,

I suppose it should be possible to run it with a command in the following format:
sudo antennatracker -A udp:192.168.1.x:14550

OK let me try that and get back to you.

No that does not work. “command not found”

@Barry_Bolton,

Where is the build located on RPi?

@Barry_Bolton,

Please navigate to /ardupilot/build/navio2 directory and try to run it again with
sudo ./AntennaTracker -A udp:192.168.1.x:14550

Hello,

Did you chmod +x (made executable) the AntennaTracker file?

(Barry Bolton) #11

No i did not. it is not in the Emlid tutorial. What would the chmod command look like in this instance


(Barry Bolton) #12

Tatiana why don’t you just add Antenna Tracker to your build?

Hello,

You may be right. Chmod +x name_off_file is used when downloading file. I use it when importing latest arducopter binaries.

https://docs.emlid.com/navio2/common/ardupilot/installation-and-running/#launching-a-custom-ardupilot-binary

When I use waf compilation (Ubuntu on windows) , resulting file is an executable.

Hi @Barry_Bolton,

Thanks for the request!
Antenna Tracker is not commonly used firmware, that’s why it isn’t included in our image.

Have you managed to run it?

Hello Tatiana. Yes I have manage to install the software as per Marc. I do not think many people would mind if it is there as other pixhawk distros have them.
