Quick Start

4x PDI Builder is the main configuration tool to adapt Arbiters for a specific system, being its main function to decide which Autopilot 1x controls the vehicle at every moment. 4x PDI Builder includes:

  • Communications: through general purpose CAN bus, RS-232, RS-485 and GPIOs.

  • Arbitration criterion: Arbiters decide which Autopilot 1x controls the vehicle according to the criterion decided by the user.

All Veronte devices, including Arbiters, are configured with PDI files.
