Cube ID is small size (25mm * 13.75mm * 3.5mm ) Remote ID which broadcasting information about UAVs in flight through a Bluetooth 5.2 dual-mode unit, supports both CAN and serial protocols.
Users can write different codes with one Cube ID only, to adapt to multiple UAVs based on their needs.
CubeID is FCC and CE certified.
Connect the CAN or Serial port on module and flight controller with the suitable cable(we provide 4 Pin CAN cable,6 Pin and 8 pin Serial cable) . Stick the module to UAV by regular sticker or soft sticker (with slightly vibration isolation).
*Keep the antenna away from the propeller.
For OEM use, you must create your OEM OpenDroneID Ardupilot firmware ，please checkFor normal user please load latest Ardupilot firmware. Do ensure that the build you are using has OpenDroneID feature enabled. Easiest way to tell is that
DID_*parameters should appear.
- 1.Connect the flight controller to computer via USB cable. Open Mission Planner（latest version）. Install the OpenDroneID firmware firmware by "Load custom firmware".
- 2.Go to "Full Parameter List" and find "DID_ENABLE". Change it to "1" to enable ODID.
1.Go to "Full Parameter List" and find "CAN_P1_DRIVER". Change it to "1" to enable CAN.
- 2.Modify the following parameters:DID_CANDRIVER : 1 (enable relative CAN port)
1.Find Serialx_PROTOCAL and change it to mavlink）
2.Modify the following parameters:
DID_CANDRIVER : 0 (disable relative CAN port)
DID_MAVPORT : (Serial port number to send OpenDroneID MAVLink messages to. Can be -1 if using DroneCAN)
Go to MissionPlanner homepage select Drone ID to set (1)UAS ID* (2)UAD ID Type and (3)UA Type
to set (1)UAS ID (2)UAD ID Type and (3)UA Type
Go to Operation to set (1)Operator ID , (2)Oper ID Type , (3)Self ID DESC and (4)Self ID Type
Download DroneScanner for IOS， OpenDroneID or DroneScanner for Android to detect and monitor nearby UAVs.
Operator are able to check UAV's location, ID , operator ID, distance from operator , ect by using these APP.
- To meet FAA requirements for manufacturers, a persistent ID needs to be recorded in Flight system.
- To achieve this with CubeID + Ardupilot setup. Ardupilot's persistent storage feature is used.
- The changes are merged into latest master at the time of writing this doc, and are expected to be added to stable release 4.4.2.
- Once the firmware with said changes is loaded, parameter
DID_OPTIONSneed to be set to 4
- This can also be done as part of default.parms at custom build stage, to ease the setup process.
- After the setting, the first reception of Basic ID containing Drone ID and other details (from Mission Planner or any other GCS) will be persistently recorded. Please note that once set the persistent parameters can't be rolled back.
- The ID will be persistently linked with the Flight Controller.
- Inside Mission Planner Go to Setup > Optional Hardware > DroneCAN/UAVCAN and establish mavcan connection depending on which CAN port you are connected.
- CubeID should appear as com.cubepilot.cubeid in the list, click Menu > Update to start the update process, Mission Planner will fetch the latest firmware binary automatically and start the process
- Start Mission Planner with CubeID connected to one of the Telem ports of Cube and the cube connected via USB. Ensure that you start connection with Baud rate as 57600.
- Select Serial Port number where CubeID is connected (Telem1 is Serial 1 and Telem2 is Serial 2).
- Select ODID TX RX device from the Top left corner list.
- Finally click Update Firmware. The firmware update can take few minutes.
