Visualize a Swarm of Quadcopters

Postby VM101 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:31 pm

I want to visualize a swarm of quadcopters using data generated in MATLAB/Simulink. The mp protocol allows to show only two planes at the same time, and is prone to jitter problem as discribed in this post: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=32246&hilit=simulink+flightgear+multiplayer&start=15.

It is possible in Simulink to send a single airplane data via UDP to fg (with the aerospace toolbox), but what I want is to send the position data of multiple airplanes to a single instance of fg. That could be done with the "mp protocol paquets" mentioned in the link above.

I need help on how to implement that, I have few knowledge on how to send data to fg and how the software interpret them.

I think these FlightGear wiki articles could be a good starting point (though I would guess some of them could be a bit old):
Low-level flying — It's all fun and games till someone looses an engine. (Paraphrased from a YouTube video)
Improving the Dassault Mirage F1 (Wiki, Forum, GitLab. Work in slow progress)
