Schematics

Servo connections

Enable servo turret

Servo connections 2

Servo connections 3

Had to pull 5v off of ultrasonic sensor

distance sensor

Not 5v tolerant, had to use a diode in series to reduce voltage

QR Decode service template

Use this template to create service that starts on the NavQ at boot

Flight Log

This is the flight log for distance sensor integration

Code

PX4 Firmware Fork

Used to experiment and integrate VL53L1X distance sensor on the FMUK66

QR Decode Python API

Used for QR code detection and decoding, via the pyzbar module
