References Tools Symbol
This tool has a wide range of capabilities, it is used to set references during the creation of a mission. Once selected, click on the map and a new window will be displayed to select the type of reference.
List of References
In this list is possible to select between 4 types of elements:
Home: select a waypoint as Home. For example, it can be used to made a multicopter return to that point using the VTol guidance.
UAV position: waypoint(s) can be linked to this reference and they will move relative to this reference.
Moving Object: it works in the same way that UAV position, but now it is possible to use any moving object. They have to be configured and associated to a Moving Object in the sniffer. You can create until 32 moving objects.
Desired position: it allows to define a fixed reference (it can be moved on the map, but not automatically). This reference can be used when there are a huge number of points. If users refer each point to a reference, user only has to move the reference to move all points or to perform a Phase (if it has the option) in a determined point.
How to add a reference:
Select Reference on the Mission Toolbar and click on New Reference.
Click on the desired position on the map and select the type of element.
Double-click on a waypoint to acces its properties. Select the Relative drop-down list and then select the element of interest.
Finally, set the relative position of the waypoint, this can be done introducing offsets or just moving the waypoint onto the desired place. A dashed line will appear to indicate that the waypoint is linked correctly.
