Teraranger

Recommended Posts

Hello 
I have a question regarding to the basics of the distance sensor 
how does a Teraranger control the distance ?
how does it function actually?
does it actually control the distance from the object underneath or only can show the height?

The Tera Ranger does not control the distance but simply measures the distance from it to an object which if mounted on a UAV and pointing down is usually the ground. ArduCopter uses this measurement to control the altitude of the UAV.

Its similar to LIDR but uses LED technology to measure distance with light.

As per the answer to the first question it measures the distance to the ground or an object underneath it. ArduCopter uses this distance in various flight modes to maintain altitude.
