Navio RPLIDAR A2 USB Connection

Hello,

I am trying to connect RPlidar A2 on my navio2 from USB. When i connect from uart of navio2 i can easily run by setting TELEM2="-C /dev/ttyAMA0" on ardurover and set the parameters serial1_protocol to 11 and serial1_baud to 115. But when i want to connect from usb i cannot run the lidar. I alerady tried TELEM3="-C /dev/ttyAMA0" and TELEM3="-C /dev/ttyUSB0" and set the parameters serial1_protocol to 11 and serial1_baud to 115.

What do i miss here?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi @mariosimbad,

Could you please connect your RPlidar to Navio and provide the output of this command:

dmesg | grep tty

Hi @gleb.gira

This is the output when i connect my RPlidar to Raspberry PI (Navio2 is attached to Raspberry) through USB

Should i connect it to navio through uart ?

Hi @mariosimbad,

How many TELEM options do you have in /etc/default/arducopter? Could you please provide us the screenshot of this file?

Hi,
I am currently facing the same issue. Is there a way to use rplidar and ardupilot via ttyUSB?
Thanks!
