Multiple Parrot Drones as Swarm via WiFi Router
If you are eager to try and fly multiple Bebop or Discos at the same time and communicate to each-other, this is the page to read hot to get that to work
What your need
- 2x Bebop
- 1x Router
- Your Fieldlaptop
First all your Bebops need to be configured. Repeat for all your Bebops
There is a configuration to make. Here are some examples as a start:
./bebop.py configure_network YOURROUTERSSID managed dhcp
./bebop.py wifikey none none
or if you have WPA2 and fixed IP's and do not have set the MAC of your Bebop in your DHCP for a static lease. IP is an example, your router could be on a different subnet. Ofcourse change the YOURROUTERSSID and YOURKEY to the SSID of your router end the password of your network.
./bebop.py configure_network YOURROUTERSSID managed 192.168.1.44
./bebop.py wifikey wpa2 YOURKEY
~/paparazzi/sw/ground_segment/tmtc/link -udp -udp_broadcast
To be able to cross-communicate some changes to the Bebop airframe need to be made:
In paparazzi center make 4x a airframe config, you can uses same airframe file for all since AC_ID make the differcder add to your airframe:
<configure name="HOST" value="192.168.1.$(AC_ID)"/> <configure name="MODEM_HOST" value="192.168.1.255"/> <configure name="MODEM_BROADCAST" value="TRUE"/>
- To make things manageable, one could also resort to local name resolving where the last part name of the device is the aircraft ID.
- Or set the last part of a static IP number to the Aircraft ID of your airframes
Press and hold the Powerbutton for 10seconds in a row until the light turns red, that is a factory reset.
