Re: Parrot disco optical flow and ultrasonic sensors function

No way. The ultrasonic sensor cannot be covered to work properly.

Re: Parrot disco optical flow and ultrasonic sensors function

Is there a way to cover them for protection from snow landings while keeping them fully functional?

Re: Parrot disco optical flow and ultrasonic sensors function

The ultrsonic sensor is simply an altimeter that provides the actual altitude above ground at low altitude (below 8 meters I think). Much more accurate than the barometric altimeter.

 

The camera allows the system to know precisely the ground speed at low altitude. Much more accurate and real time than the GPS speed.

 

Both information are critical to control the landing function of the Disco.

Parrot disco optical flow and ultrasonic sensors function

What are the sensors on the bottom of the parrot disco for and how do they work?
