Maintenance

This section allows operators to check the Docking Station's real-time health status and enables them to perform maintenance controls and Docking Station commands.

Docking Station

Docking station status

The docking station health card indicates the current status of the docking station. The docking station has the following states:
  • Remote debugging: When the docking station is undergoing maintenance from the control station i.e., in the FlytBase application, the status will be displayed as remote debugging.
  • Onsite debugging: When any binding/debugging activity is being performed on-site directly from the docking station, the status will be displayed as onsite debugging.
  • Idle: When the docking station is not in use, the status will be displayed as Idle.
  • Docking Station Storage: The docking station storage provides information about the available data and total storage capacity of the docking station.

Video feed

The docking station health includes the video feed from the Docking station camera. You can toggle the available video feed on or off as needed for viewing.

Docking station position

The docking station's position in the health status indicates the GPS health status of the docking station.
  • GPS Fix: The GPS fix indicates the current GPS health of the GPS system in the docking station.
    • “Fixed” status means the GPS position is locked and is ready for missions.
    • "Open" status means the GPS position is not locked and not ready for missions. The drone cannot take off with this status.
  • GPS Satellites: The GPS satellite count represents the number of satellites that the docking station can lock onto for accurate positioning. If the satellite count is low, the docking station will not allow any flights.
  • RTK Satellites: The RTK satellite count refers to the number of satellites available for RTK (Real-Time Kinematics) to achieve precise landing on the docking station after a mission. If the RTK satellite count falls below the required threshold, the docking station will not allow precision landing on the docking station. Instead, the drone will move to the alternate landing site for landing that is set by the user.
Dock Position

Environment:

The environment card allows you to monitor the H.V.A.C (Internal) values of the docking station as well as Weather (External) conditions.
H.V.A.C stands for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning unit.
The following parameters can be monitored:
  • H.V.A.C (Internal):
    • Temperature: The temperature of the docking station can be monitored with this information card. Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius by default.
    • Humidity: The humidity of the docking station can be monitored with this information card. Humidity is measured in kilo Pascals by default.
    • H.V.A.C state: The status and functionalities of the H.V.A.C units are explained below:
      • Idle: The H.V.A.C. unit is in idle condition.
      • Heating: The H.V.A.C. unit has initiated heaters to increase the temperature and increase back to the ideal temperature for the docking station’s use.
      • Cooling: The H.V.A.C. unit has initiated coolers to reduce the temperature and reduce it back to the ideal temperature for the docking station’s use.
      • Dehumidifying: The H.V.A.C. unit has initiated dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity of the docking station. This enables the docking station to maintain standard conditions for efficient usage.
  • Weather (External): The weather card provides information on the external weather conditions at the docking station’s location, using the integrated weather station in the docking station.
    • Temperature: External temperature conditions of the docking station can be monitored using the integrated weather station attached to the docking station. Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius by default.
    • Wind: Wind speed at the location of the docking station can be monitored using the integrated weather station attached to the docking station. Wind speed is measured in meters per second by default.
    • Rain: Rain at the location of the docking station can be monitored using the integrated weather station attached to the docking station. Rain is measured in millimeters by default.

Network

The network card in the Maintenance tab allows you to monitor the network parameters of the docking station. And would display the following:
  • Type: The type of network used is displayed in the Network card.
  • Ethernet: When ethernet is used as a network source for the docking station, ethernet is shown in the network card.
  • Quality: The quality of the internet connection to the docking station is displayed on the network card. Quality can be rated Poor, Average, and Good as per the data transfer speed.
  • Rate: The rate of data transfer to and from the docking station through the network utilized is displayed in the Network card.
Network status of the dock

Power Source

The power source card provides data related to the power being received by the docking station.
  • Voltage: The voltage of the power source is displayed on the power source card. The input voltage that is recommended for the docking station is 100-240 V AC.
  • Current: The current usage of the power source is displayed on the power source card. The input current that is recommended for the docking station is 6.25 to 15 A.
Power Source

Backup Battery

The backup battery panel displays information about the backup battery.
  • Switch: If the backup battery is powered on, the switch is displayed as closed; otherwise, it is displayed as open.
  • Backup Voltage: The voltage supply of the backup battery is displayed in the corresponding column.
  • Temperature: The temperature of the backup battery is displayed under the temperature column of the backup battery panel.

Drone

Drone Health

The maintenance tab in the devices feature allows you to monitor the health parameters of the drone along with the docking station.
  • Drone status: The current status of the drone can be monitored in the drone status section. The status displayed here represents the real-time data of the drone.
    • Standby: This status indicates that the drone is ready for flight.
    • Upgrading firmware: This status Indicates that the firmware in the drone or battery is being updated.
    • Automatic Take-off: This status indicates that the automatic take-off sequence has been initiated.
