Net IDs

What is a Telemetry Net ID?

A Telemetry Net ID is the ID your telemetry radios use to ensure they are communicating with eachother and not other vehicles. 25 is the default number set by Mission Planner, and as such, has a high chance of getting or sending communications from the wrong vehicle. This can be disastrous in Auto mode, as vehicles may move unpredictably.

Find Your Net ID

This is a omprehensive list of all Telemetry Net IDs currently in use by the Olin Intelligent Vehicles Lab, and which projects they are assigned to. 25 is the default number set by Mission Planner.

These net IDs are taken:

  • 40: Lavabot
  • 42: Lavabot (spare)
  • 101: Fixed Wing
  • 102: Fixed Wing
  • 103: Fixed Wing
  • 104: Apprentice
  • 105: Bixler
  • 154: DARPA
  • 254: DARPA
