Problem with ZIO camera trigger over Ardupilot


Solution: 

Update ZIO SOM firmware :  Zio_SoM_Firmware v2.0.1.4

ZIO gimbal firmware : Zio-Firmware v7.8.1

Change CAM_TYPE = 5 instead of 6.
Gremsy will work with Ardupilot to solve this problem as soon as possible.


Below is the conversation:


Dear gremsy,

We are using a gremsy ZIO gimbal camera on an Ardupilot drone.
- ZIO gimbal firmware v7.8.0
- ZIO SOM firmware v2.0.1 build.12122023
- Ardupilot 4.3.3 and 4.4.3

I want to use the Gremsy zio camera to take photos in mission command.


Question:
Can you tell me which MAVLink command to control the Gremsy zio camera Shooting photo on a mission?


Regards,
Koh

Hi Koh,
As for the trigger, you can use the command below: 

I think that we should create a chat conversation that has our engineering team there. So that they can provide you with a prompt response for integration, especially the Mavlink custom program.

Hi,
I'm Duong, software engineer at Gremsy.
1. Reply for your questions
Can you tell me which MAVLink command to switch camera photo/video mode on a mission?Can you tell me which MAVLink command to start and stop camera video on a mission?
-> You can use the camera menu on the Ground control station (QGC or Mission Planner) to switch and control the video recording while doing a mission. We didn't test the video control while doing a mission, but I think it is possible.
We don't have an example to control the video on our PayloadSDK at the moment, but it will be updated soon.
About the command to control the Zio payload's camera, you can refer https://mavlink.io/en/services/camera.html, or take a look into our PayloadSDK at https://github.com/Gremsy/PayloadSdk/tree/develop
2. MAVlink command supported list-> We will complete the supported list of MAVlink commands for our payloads soon. We will send you right after the document is ready.-> For now, please follow the MAVlink camera protocol and our PayloadSDK for interacting with our payloads.
Hope this helps,Duong Ng

Dear gremsy,
Thank you for your reply.
>As for the trigger, you can use the command below: MAV_CMD_DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL (203 )

I tried MAV_CMD_DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL (203 ) to Shooting camera.```mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0,115200 --console --map --load-module gimbal,messagemessage COMMAND_LONG 0 0 203 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0
```
But there is no response.


And I tried MAV_CMD_IMAGE_START_CAPTURE (2000) to Shooting camera.```
mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0,115200 --console --map --load-module gimbal,message
message COMMAND_LONG 0 0 2000 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0
```
The command ACCEPTED, but no photo saved on the SD card.image.pngQuestion:Does the Gremsy zio camera support Shooting photos on a mission using some mavlink command?

Hi there,I think you must change the target_sysid and target_compid of your COMMAND_LONG.```
mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0,115200 --console --map --load-module gimbal,message
message COMMAND_LONG 0 0 2000 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0
```This command will send to target_system_id 0 and target_comp_id 0, this is not our Zio system.
I think you can try with```
mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0,115200 --console --map --load-module gimbal,message

Hi 項錦先,
What is your system_id and comp_id of your companion computer ?Please note that the Zio payload only accepts the commands from Autopilot (1,1), Ground control station (1,190) and Onboard computer (1,191).

Hi 項錦先,
We tested the communication between the Zio payload and mavproxy (running on an Ubuntu PC).This command will work```mavproxy.py --master=/dev/ttyACM0,115200 --console --map --load-module gimbal,message
set source_component 191
message COMMAND_LONG 1 101 2000 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0```We must change the source_component to 191 (onboard computer) before sending it to the Zio payload.You can set the source_component directly on your command or on the mavproxy GUI.
Hope this helps,Duong Ng

Dear gremsy,

Thank you for your reply.

Dear gremsy,

Thank you for your reply.

I can use "set source_component 191" on mavproxy to save photos to the Zio payload sd card by COMMAND_LONG.```# Using SITL
cd gitlab/ardupilot/ArduCopter
../Tools/autotest/sim_vehicle.py -A "--serial2=uart:/dev/ttyUSB0:115200" --console --map -D -l 34.968639174,136.9803456388,5,7module load gimbal

```
But when I use MAV_CMD_DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL or MAV_CMD_IMAGE_START_CAPTURE in Mission.```# Using SITL
cd gitlab/ardupilot/ArduCopter
../Tools/autotest/sim_vehicle.py -A "--serial2=uart:/dev/ttyUSB0:115200" --console --map -D -l 34.968639174,136.9803456388,5,7module load gimbal

Question:Do I need to set "set source_component 191" somewhere for Mission ?

Hi Sensyn-robotic team,
About the issue of trigger image and control gimbal when flying a mission, we assume that you are using an Ardupilot flight controller.We found some minor bugs on the software of the Zio payload. We just released an alpha software package to fix your issues.Please help us to update your Zio payload and the issue should be fixed.Here is the new software for testing software v2.0.1.4 alphaPlease note that you MUST update the software for the camera to v2.0.1.4 and the firmware for the gimbal to v7.8.1 as well.
You can find the instruction for creating a map with the exact command for trigger image and control gimbal on the attachment file.

Hi Koh,
When perform the mission, did you see the camera trigger or not? 
If it triggered during flight, please check the SD card and format it on the QGC settings 
Also try with another SD card.

Hi Sensyn-robotic team,
About the issue of trigger image and control gimbal when flying a mission, we assume that you are using an Ardupilot flight controller.We found some minor bugs on the software of the Zio payload. We just released an alpha software package to fix your issues.Please help us to update your Zio payload and the issue should be fixed.Here is the new software for testing software v2.0.1.4 alphaPlease note that you MUST update the software for the camera to v2.0.1.4 and the firmware for the gimbal to v7.8.1 as well.
You can find the instruction for creating a map with the exact command for trigger image and control gimbal on the attachment file.
Hope this helps,BR,
Duong Ng

We can check if you are missing something.And, please confirm some software version you are using: + software for the Zio's camera
+ firmware for the Zio's gimbal + software of the Ardupilot
Waiting for your reply

Dear Duong Ng,
I am usingArduCopter simulator Copter-4.4.3Zio_SoM_Firmware v2.0.1.4 + Zio-Firmware v7.8.1.
There is no CAM_TYPE parameter in Ardupilot.I set CAM1_TYPE = 6
I am using DO_DIGICAM_CONTROL
I saved a mapping plan file from MissionPlanner, Can you check if my mapping plan is wrong?

Dear Duong Ng,
Thank you for your quick response.After changing CAM1_TYPE to 5, the camera trigger in the mission is worked.

But in this zio-manual, the setting is MNT1_TYPE: “6”.https://docs.gremsy.com/payloads/zio-manual-v2/autopilot-setup/setup-with-ardupilot/3.-parameter-settings

Do we need to set CAM1_TYPE to 5 other than 6 in the future?

Hi 項錦先,
It is a minor bug of Ardupilot, we will update the manual asap.You need to set CAM1_TYPE=5 for now.
Good to hear that you can trigger images in the mission.Go ahead.
