The newest version of Botlink's Android App comes with improvements to better fit in with Offline functionality. With the shift of how images are moved from the sensor to Botlink's processing platform, we saw the importance of updating how you the customer views this process.
- Images Taken and Transferred is now correct over LTE and the USB Radio
- SD Card Status will be displayed (no SD card or SD card not formatted correctly)
- SD Card Storage
- Clear Storage
- Adding Cameras over USB Radio
- Camera Connection Status
For each of these updates please see the sections below for more information.
In the Mission Bar, you will now see that Images Transferred and Images Taken are displayed. While flying, Images Taken will increase as the GoPro captures your data. Once the mission has finished, the GoPro will start updating Images Transferred as they are sent to the XRD. The progress will be displayed in this tab, so you can be sure all images have been transferred.
Storage and SD Card Status:
This tab in the Mission Bar shows the memory on the microSD card as % available. This is helpful in keeping track of how much storage you have left after transferring images from the GoPro out in the field. It also will let you know if the SD card is not being read correctly.
You can now clear the memory of your GoPro’s microSD card and the XRD’s SD card, from the XRD Overflow menu.
- While in mission control, tap the button and then tap XRD Overflow.
- Once the images have transferred to the XRD (indicated by the Image Count feature), you can clear the GoPro’s microSD card.
- Please ensure that you DO NOT clear the XRD’s microSD card until you have transferred the files to your computer or uploaded them using the Botlink Uploader.
Add Cameras over USB Radio:
Setting up a camera connection can be done over 915 MHz radios.
- Connect to your drone using a USB radio connection.
- Select the button, and tap “Camera” on the pop-up menu.
- Enter the WiFi information for your camera.
- The SSID password is case sensitive.
- Go Pro users: WiFi information is typically on a white label on the front of the camera.
Camera Connection Status:
While connected to your UAV, your camera’s connection status will be displayed in the Mission Bar at the bottom of your screen. Your camera will have the status of Disconnected, Scanning, Connecting, Configuring, or Connected.
