This page collects some interesting or instructional use cases of the UAVCAN GUI Tool.
Since the GUI Tool is built on top of Pyuavcan, you should also check out its examples - they are mostly compatible with the GUI Tool’s embedded IPython console, although some minor modifications may be required.
Generating audiovisual feedback
Some nodes support UAVCAN messages from the namespace
that allow one to generate arbitrary indications on remote UAVCAN nodes.
Here’s how this feature can be invoked from the interactive console of the UAVCAN GUI Tool:
# Beeping at 1kHz for 0.1 seconds broadcast(uavcan.equipment.indication.BeepCommand(frequency=1000, duration=0.1)) # Beeping at 1kHz for 0.1 seconds every 0.5 seconds for 5 seconds broadcast(uavcan.equipment.indication.BeepCommand(frequency=1000, duration=0.1), interval=0.5, duration=5) # Turning all RGB LEDs of index 0 magenta broadcast(uavcan.equipment.indication.LightsCommand(commands=[ uavcan.equipment.indication.SingleLightCommand(color=uavcan.equipment.indication.RGB565(red=31, green=0, blue=31))]))
