AR2 and Raspberry Pi zero w

Post by Ctrip » 20 Apr 2017, 00:05

Hi All,
I want to connect a RPi ZW to the AR2 via an FTDI cable. Will the AR2's USB port be able to supply enough power to the RPi ZW?

Reason: I currently have a uBlox GPS module connected via FTDI, providing position information, but want to adapt it for indoor use. I thought I could use the new WiFi feature on the RPi ZW to receive position data from an indoor motion capture system instead. So the RPi will act as a pseudo GPS receiver, and I don't have to modify the current drone software.

Conversely, I thought just a USB WiFi adapter receiving GPS formatted position information might also work.

Regards
Carl
