Dynamic pressure sensor estimates airspeed from pressure readings.
- pt - this setting enables the driver
- off - the pressure sensor is powered off and there’s no data output
- airspeed - the sensor provides airspeed fixes for autopilot, the output is sent through variables
- buoyancy - the sensor provides filtered pressure measurements and the data is sent to variable
buoyancy[Pa]. this option is used mainly for Blimps.
- prio - redundancy priority for sensor.
- primary - data will be used when available.
- secondary - data will be used when primary is unavailable.
- low - level3 priority, used when primary and secondary is unavailable.
- safety - used when no other sources are available.
- kalman - filter settings for data (Q=0.05, R=30)
- calib - calibration mode
- auto - the zero bias will be estimated on power on
- fixed - the zero bias is set up in
- bias - the bias value, used for fixed calibration mode.
The use of fixed calibration mode is strongly recommended. To perform the calibration, follow these steps:
- change the
calibsetting to auto
- reboot device
- execute node command
Recalibrate differential sensor
- reload nodes configuration values on GCU to refresh data
- change the
calibsetting to fixed
* Pre-flight check should always include Airspeed sensor test.
