This is an ALPHA RELEASE. It has never been tested. Don't attempt to fly with it !
OSDLite 3.1 Features:
-Added: Support for simultaneous display of unlimited number video streams. As much as hardware can support
-Added: Virtual camera: pan, tilt and zooming
-Added: Lens distorsion correction
-Added: Stereoscopic display
-Added: Stereoscopic camera (like BlackBird cam)
-Added: Stereoscopic vision from 2 cameras (like GoPro 3D)
-Added: Flight Director V-BAR
-Added: Keyboard's ScrollLock LED and taskbar icon are used to signal alarms state
-Added: Sun & moon indications (used as mark for lens calibration)
-Added: Display of Target markers in the HUD's CameraSpace area
-Added: Cursor informations
-Added: 3D multisampling
-Improved: laptop's battery display
-Improved: Internal mathematic library
-Improved: PitchLadder rendering
-Improved: Asynchronous communication calls when sending user commands (click on OSD still proceed synchronously)
OSDLite 3.x Upcoming features:
-Direct drone control
-Gimbal control: Stabilization, Target tracking...
-Racing mode OSD
-Antenna tracker implementation
OSDLite 2.x Features:
-Added GPS Tracker for GML format
-Added advanced GPS Tracker for KML/KMZ format with picture snapshot
-Added FMS registers
-Added Audio encoding
-Added support for all video codec
-Added wind vector in digital HUD
-Added AirSpeed, Variometer and Anemometer sensors
-Observator view (for TV show)
-Possibility to include video from internal recorder for playback
-Possibility to replace video feed by blue screen. Without video, anti-alias is disabled, so OSD can be reinjected by third party device
-Added Scanning of bandwidth for external MAVLink devices
-Added Displaying of other MAVLink or GPS devices in augmented reality
-Added waypoints to passive radar display
-Target labeling in augmented reality
OSDLite 1.x Features:
-Support for others sensors sources such as Windows Sensors Platform (win7)
-Implementation of Flight Management System features
-Virtual waypoint visualization in augmented reality
-Possibility to resync Sensor & media playback
-Real-time of video and sensors recording
-Playback simulation from recorded session
-Added Line of Sight to Digital HUD
-Added Fuel, Ground collision & Stall alarms to Digital HUD
-Added Arm/Disarm command
-Added Autopilot commands (use with care !)
Major bugs fixed:
-Race condition on video initialization (depending of hardware setup)
-HMI lockup caused if video refresh rate is set to 0 (no limitation).
-MAJOR FIX/IMPROVEMENT of geolocation of Waypoints, Home in augmented reality (bad ECEF/ENU/NED coordinates conversion depending of Latitude)
-Fixed DeadLock condition when loading mission / configuring device
-Fixed playback failure when mission items where defined upon recording on OSDLite 2.2
-Fixed KML/KMZ export (was disabled)
-Fixed Observer's view can reuse the video device acquisition from the primary view on ATI Radeon HD76000M series.
Minor bugs fixed:
-Internal IMU is disabled when payblack paused
-Loiter, Land & takeoff Missions items, are now displayed on radar
-64bits version is not operationnal (compiler issues). Use the x86.
-APM board, might not boot correctly if connected to usb
-Only one media can be read at once for playback. Synchronization of multiples video will be implemented on later versions.
-Relative speed and ETA are experimentals, and should be considered as not reliable.
-APM's USB driver is not reliable and presents communication issues, especially when sending commands from GCS
-Full screen mode seems to have strange behaviour on laptop integrated graphic device
-If upgrading from previous version, check your previous configuration to enable new features (such radar). Especially for new intruments in the Digital HUD setup
-Although setup can perform an upgrade, If you want to be sure to have all new features enabled, you should save your OSDLite configuration and uninstall previous version.
How to support OSDLite ?
Since i'm lacking of ressources, some interestings features are pending :
-DJI Phantom, Mavic for complete integration in OSDLite
-HD video Rx/Tx for image analysis with OpenCV (target detection, obstacle avoidance)
-3D Camera for full stereoscopic integration
-HoloLens, Oculus Rift or equivalent for better stereoscopic integration and natural camera control. Currently using Headplay and TrackIR.
-Lidar or equivalent device. Mounted on gimbal, will allow to evaluate precisely targets's distance (detected with OpenCV algorithms)
Please report any bugs by opening ticket on Sourceforge.
