For the message definitions see http://docs.paparazziuav.org/latest/paparazzi_messages.html

Types

Paparazzi "PPRZ" standard message for direct serial connection

Pprzlink v1.0

PPRZ-message: ABCxxxxxxxDE
    A PPRZ_STX (0x99)
    B LENGTH (PPRZ_STX->PPRZ_CHECKSUM_B)
    C PPRZ_DATA
      0 SENDER_ID
      1 MSG_ID
      2 MSG_PAYLOAD
      . DATA (messages.xml)
    D PPRZ_CHECKSUM_A (sum[B->C])
    E PPRZ_CHECKSUM_B (sum[ck_a])

Pprzlink v2.0

Note that there is currently no explicit way to recognize whether the protocol is v1.0 or 2.0 so it has to be known before the communication.

PPRZ-message: ABCxxxxxxxDE
    A PPRZ_STX (0x99)
    B LENGTH (A->E)
    C PPRZ_DATA
      0 SOURCE (~sender_ID)
      1 DESTINATION (can be a broadcast ID)
      2 CLASS/COMPONENT
        bits 0-3: 16 class ID available
        bits 4-7: 16 component ID available
      3 MSG_ID
      4 MSG_PAYLOAD
      . DATA (messages.xml)
    D PPRZ_CHECKSUM_A (sum[B->C])
    E PPRZ_CHECKSUM_B (sum[ck_a])

XBee API format

XBee-message: ABCDxxxxxxxE
    A XBEE_START (0x7E)
    B LENGTH_MSB (D->D)
    C LENGTH_LSB
    D XBEE_PAYLOAD
      0 XBEE_TX16 (0x01) / XBEE_RX16 (0x81)
