Drone Manager feature

command messageolympe.messages.drone_manager.discover_drones(_timeout=10, _no_expect=False, _float_tol=(1e-07, 1e-09))

Drone_manager.Discover_drones

The list will contain: * known drones not currently visible. * known drones currently visible. * unknown drones currently visible.

Parameters
  • _timeout (int) – command message timeout (defaults to 10)

  • _no_expect (bool) – if True for,do not expect the usual command expectation (defaults to False)

  • _float_tol (tuple) – specify the float comparison tolerance, a 2-tuple containing a relative tolerance float value and an absolute tolerate float value (default to (1e-07, 1e-09)). See python 3 stdlib math.isclose documentation for more information

Result: The drone manager will answer with a list of drone_list_item()

Expectations: drone_list_item(_policy='wait')

event messageolympe.messages.drone_manager.drone_list_item(serial=None, model=None, name=None, connection_order=None, active=None, visible=None, security=None, has_saved_key=None, rssi=None, list_flags=None, _policy='check_wait', _float_tol=(1e-07, 1e-09))

Drone_manager.Drone_list_item

Item describing a drone.

Parameters
  • serial (string) – Serial number of the drone.

  • model (u16) – Model id of the drone.

  • name (string) – Name (SSID) of the drone.

  • connection_order (u8) – 0 if the drone is unknwon (never connected). Else, order of last connection (1 = most recent)

  • active (u8) – 1 if the drone is active (the drone manager tries to connect or is connected to it) 0 if the drone is not the active one.

  • visible (u8) – 1 if the drone is currently visible, 0 otherwise.

  • security (olympe.enums.drone_manager.security) – Security method used by the drone.

  • has_saved_key (u8) – 1 if the drone manager has a saved security key for the drone, 0 otherwise. If security method is not ‘none’, and this value is 0, then the controller should prompt the user for a passphrase before sending a connect.

  • rssi (i8) – The drone rssi (wifi signal strength estimation). The value is meaningless if the drone is not visible.

  • list_flags (BitfieldOf(olympe.enums.drone_manager.list_flags, u8)) –

  • _policy (olympe.arsdkng.expectations.ExpectPolicy) – specify how to check the expectation. Possible values are ‘check’, ‘wait’ and ‘check_wait’ (defaults to ‘check_wait’)

  • _float_tol (tuple) – specify the float comparison tolerance, a 2-tuple containing a relative tolerance float value and an absolute tolerate float value (default to (1e-07, 1e-09)). See python 3 stdlib math.isclose documentation for more information

Triggered when requested discover_drones().

command messageolympe.messages.drone_manager.connect(serial, key, _timeout=10, _no_expect=False, _float_tol=(1e-07, 1e-09))

Drone_manager.Connect

Request connection to a specific drone. Override the auto-selected drone.

Parameters
  • serial (string) – Serial number of the drone.

  • key (string) – Security key (passphrase) to use. This arg is ignored if the drone security is ‘none’. If the drone manager has a saved key for the drone, pass an empty string to use it

  • _timeout (int) – command message timeout (defaults to 10)

  • _no_expect (bool) – if True for,do not expect the usual command expectation (defaults to False)

  • _float_tol (tuple) – specify the float comparison tolerance, a 2-tuple containing a relative tolerance float value and an absolute tolerate float value (default to (1e-07, 1e-09)). See python 3 stdlib math.isclose documentation for more information

Result: The drone manager will send an update of its connection_state(), if relevant

Expectations: connection_state(_policy='wait')

command messageolympe.messages.drone_manager.forget(serial, _timeout=10, _no_expect=False, _float_tol=(1e-07, 1e-09))

Drone_manager.Forget

Forget the given drone. If the drone is the selected one, the auto- selection will run again.

Parameters
  • serial (string) – Serial number of the drone to forget.

  • _timeout (int) – command message timeout (defaults to 10)

  • _no_expect (bool) – if True for,do not expect the usual command expectation (defaults to False)

  • _float_tol (tuple) – specify the float comparison tolerance, a 2-tuple containing a relative tolerance float value and an absolute tolerate float value (default to (1e-07, 1e-09)). See python 3 stdlib math.isclose documentation for more information

Result: If the drone was the active one, a new one will be autoselected, and connection_state() update will be sent as needed. Otherwise, no answer will be sent from the drone manager

Expectations: connection_state(_policy='wait')

event messageolympe.messages.drone_manager.connection_state(state=None, serial=None, model=None, name=None, _policy='check_wait', _float_tol=(1e-07, 1e-09))

Drone_manager.Connection_state

State of the connection.

Parameters
  • state (olympe.enums.drone_manager.connection_state) – Current state of the connection.
