module load tracker
This is an improved antenna tracker, where the APM is mounted on an antenna tracker (with a GPS module) which in turn is connected to the ground station. Using the positions of the APM on the UAV and the APM on the antenna, this module will send commands to the antenna APM to alter it’s azimuth/elevation (via servos on the APM) to maintain tracking with the UAV.
tracker set port <portname.` and
tracker set baudrate <n>` to
set the serial port and baudrate of the tracker.
tracker arm and
tracker disarm to arm and disarm the servos
on the tracker respectively.
tracker level will perform the level calibration routine and
tracker calpress will calibrate the barometer, so that air pressure
corrections can be sent back to the UAV (for a more accurate altitude
tracker start will start the tracking.
There are several parameters for the tracker, to specify the serial port
that the antenna tracker APM is on. Use
tracker param [set|show|fetch|help] to manage the parameters. There
are three parameters - port, baud and debug.
