The new carrier board has an integrated 1090Mhz ADS-B IN receiver from uAvionix, this allows users to detect ADS-B OUT equip aircraft in the area and displays information such as the Position, Altitude, Speed and ID of the detected aircraft on a connected ground station. This also allow sense and avoid features included in Ardupilot to be used if configured. This ADS-B receiver is connected to the internal serial 5 Port, this is compatible with Ardupilot, Mission Planner and QGC.
To enable ADSB in Ardupilot to detect aircraft on ground station you need to set the following parameters ADSB_ENABLE = 1 Enable ADS-B (Disabled as default) SERIAL5_BAUD = 57 Set baud rate SERIAL5_PROTOCOL = 1 Set protocol SR0_ADSB = 2 Set ADSB stream rate to ground station Note: You may need to set SR1_ADSB = 2 to enable receiving on ground station on Telem 1 or SR2 for Telem 2.
