Payload SDK Features - Aircraft State Push Data

2018-11-06

Push Data Description

The Payload SDK provides access to some real-time information about the aircraft's state. Here are some examples of how this information can be used by your payload:

  • For camera payloads, you can record the GPS position of the aircraft at the time a picture was taken and store it as metadata
  • For camera/gimbal payloads, you can record the attitude of the aircraft and use it to rotate the picture in use cases which demand absolute position and orientation
  • You can monitor the battery levels and turn off some functionality of the payload when the aircraft battery drops below a certain level
