Can GUI follow a drone in the sky?

#1

Hi. I’m new here, but I’m working with drones, not robots. My question has to do with how to get the GUI to follow the drone as it flies. Right now, it takes off and I’m still looking at the ground where it took off. When I try to change the view to follow it, it’s almost impossible to find, especially when its moving. I tried several searches on how to solve this, but came up with nothing.

Can anyone help with this??

Thanks,
Joe

You can right-click the drone (or the drone’s name on the left panel) and choose Follow. There are parameters you can tune on the left panel under GUI -> camera -> track_visual.

You can also set it up to follow from startup through SDF using the <track_visual> tag.
