The acceletometer configuration menu shows two possible configurations for an external sensors.

Accelerometer Configuration Menu

  • Initial allows users to select the initial sensor. It is possible to choose between the following sensors:
    • Internal: Veronte uses the internal sensor.
    • External: Veronte uses a specific external sensor.
    • Integer var sensor: Veronte uses a integer value provided by an external sensor.
    • Decimal var sensor: Veronte uses a decimal value provided by an external sensor.
  • Edit Rotation Matrix: indicates the orientation of the external sensor with respect to the board.

Note: it is possible to change the initial sensor during the mission in case the initial does not work properly or due to users requirements. This can be done with an automation see section 6.9.2 .

External

This option uses the information from a specific external sensor. Only the Rotation Matrix need to be configured.

At this moment this feature is only avaible with an External Magnetometer.

Integer

In this menu it is possible to configure integer variables provided by an external sensor.

When Integer variable is selected, the previous panel will be shown. In this panel, user select the variable that has been stored in a user variable (Green Box) and the operations that will be carried on (Red Box). It is possible use the signal and work with it using a linear or quadratic relation. The following image shows an example of a linear relation.

The process of configuration has to be done using Custom Messages, this has to be configured in Devices/Others/XPC Uint8. It will depend on the device used and how it manages the information.

 Decimal

In this menu, user selects flotant variables for each axe (X,Y,Z), these do not requiere a signal treatment. The process of configuration is similar to the one carried out when configuring a Integer Variable.
