Weather Station Interface

davis2ivy

The weather station interface davis2ivy polls Davis VantagePro/VantagePro2 stations and broadcasts the current weather data (ambient pressure, temperature, wind speed and direction) over Paparazzi's Ivy bus message system. Connect to the station is via a serial port.

davis2ivy may send messages with different aircraft IDs. The simplest way is to use the ID of the actually flying aircraft, thus the messages will show up in the messages window and in the log file as if they were sent from that aircraft. If you use another aircraft ID, you have to add the -a option to get the messages into the log file.

Options

The program can be found in $PAPARAZZI_HOME/sw/ground_segment/misc.

  • -a Send ALIVE message
  • -b <bus> Specify Ivy bus (default is 127.255.255.255:2010)
  • -d <device> Specify the weather station device (default is /dev/ttyUSB1)
  • -i <number> Specify the aircraft ID (default is 1)
  • -s <number> Specify the interval between station polls in seconds (default is 1)
