4Gmetry III adds fabulous onboard computing capabilities, without re-building, re-wiring, re-tuning your beautiful vehicle. Just plug-in 4Gmetry III into your vehicle’s Pixhawk: same drone, new tricks.
GET YOUR VEHICLE IP-BASED.
UNLIMITED CONTROL DISTANCE.
Instead of relying uniquely on your own radio link, exploit a worldwide, preexisting, fast, growing, affordable network of hundreds of thousands antennas: 4G Internet.
4Gmetry streams the telemetry (MavLink) over 4G Internet to your remote control station (e.g: Mission Planner). In this way you can control and track your drone/vehicle from an unlimited distance.
4Gmetry supports fallback to HSDPA, 3G, GPRS and even WiFi; it’s all up to the USB-plugged-in connectivity dongle(s).
BEAUTIFUL FULL HD VIDEOS.
STREAM LIVE ON YOUTUBE.
Streaming an H.264 video via 4G is as natural as uncommenting a gstreamer line of code, compatible with all h264 cameras, including Logitech C920 w/ 1080p Zeiss Lens.
When 4G bandwidth is not available, you may want to stream via WiFi. This is as simple as replacing your 4G Dongle with a WiFi antenna, leaving unaltered the same IP-based logic. You will enjoy beautiful HD recordings, natively digital and the unique possibility to stream live on YouTube.
COMPUTER VISION MADE EASY.
Rover, copter, plane: 4Gmetry III comes with a super-fast wizard to get it configured to your vehicle needs in a matter of seconds.
Developers can enjoy a pre-configured environment. With OpenVPN you can easily add a security layer (SSL) to your telemetry and easily access to your veihcle via SSH. On the resources page you’ll find amazing OpenCV Python apps and IR beacons targeting.
