I have a pair of Solo UAVs, and I am attempting to create a testbed for exploring various multiple UAV mission assignment and movement algorithms, but I am having significant troubles trying to get multiple solos to connect to one base station so that they can receive different sets of commands from one source. The gentleman through whom I purchased them assured me that this was not only a possibility, but also not terribly difficult, but it seems I have had nothing but difficulty in my attempts to work with this platform.
I have tried getting them to connect to each other's wifi and I have tried getting them to both connect to another wifi router. Do you have any recommendations for me on how to achieve autonomous flight of multiple solos from one base station? I would like to expand my set of solos to greater numbers, but I have to know what two will work together before I purchase greater numbers.
I can get individuals to fly the series of waypoints I plan and transmit, but again the key is to divide the work among many individuals working concurrently.
If there is some way to connect for communications besides wifi to achieve this, or additional hardware that would make things easier, I am all ears.
Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter.
