Configuration of UgCS Client
The following settings are defined for the situations when the client and the server are on different PCs:
- Start the UGCS client. When the UgCS screen appears, select the «Choose another server» option and enter the following IP: port – [IP address of UCS server]:3334.
- The credentials screen at this point should appear. Please fill it with valid user credentials.
Note: Until no other user is created, during the start no credentials are asked since the admin account is used by default.
- In order to connect the UgCS client to Geoserver, go to Menu – Main Menu – Configuration – Geoservers, and enter the IP of the server PC instead of “http://localhost”.
Make sure the DJI vehicle is already connected. In the UGCS client, it should appear in the vehicle list in the top right corner.
To enable camera control via keyboard, in the UgCS client’s top right corner click on the keyboard icon (Input Mapping), and from the dropdown menu select the «Keyboard – payload» option. The input window can be closed. Is also possible to define here any joystick as the payload control device.
In order to control cameras, the user needs to have control over the vehicle. To gain control, make sure it is not locked by any other user, and then click on the vehicle icon in order to open the dropdown menu. Click «Gain control». At this point, the vehicle has been locked by the current user.
On the main screen select the vehicle. In the keyboard payload control case, the camera can be controlled by pressing ↑ / ↓ or W/S keys. To rotate the camera to the left or right, press the Q/E keys. Please note that in order to control the camera, the UGCS client should be in focus. It is enough to just click anywhere in the UGCS client to focus.
