sonar_adc module

Sonar ADC driver.

Reads an anlog sonar sensor and outputs sonar distance in [m]

Example for airframe file

Add to your firmware section: This example contains all possible configuration options, not all of them are mandatory!

1 <module name="sonar_adc">
2  <define name="SONAR_OFFSET" value="0" />
3  <define name="SONAR_SCALE" value="0.0166" />
4  <define name="USE_SONAR" value="" />
5  <configure name="ADC_SONAR" value="ADC_X" />
6 </module>

Module configuration options

Configure Options

  • name: ADC_SONAR value: ADC_X
    Description: select ADC to use with the sonar

Define Options

  • name: SONAR_OFFSET value: 0
    Description: sensor offset in [adc] - default is 0
  • name: SONAR_SCALE value: 0.0166
    Description: sensor scale factor [m/adc] - default is 0.0166
  • name: USE_SONAR value:
    Description: activate use of sonar in INS extended filter (only rotorcraft)

Module functions

Init Functions

These initialization functions are called once on startup.

Periodic Functions

These functions are called periodically at the specified frequency from the module periodic loop.

  • sonar_adc_read()
    • Frequency in Hz: 20
    • Autorun: LOCK
      Periodic function automatically starts after init and can't be stopped.
