The PX4FLOW Sensor utilises a specialised high resolution downward pointing camera, known as an Optical Flow Smart Camera to track ground velocity, along with a Sonar Sensor to measure distance. These two sensors together can provide Autpilots such as the Pixhawk 4 with the ability to position lock when no GPS signal is available, for example indoors. It can also be used in conjunction with the GPS data to provide a more accurate position lock. The sonar sensor can be used to provide a terrain tracking capability.
The Flow Kit has a native resolution of 752×480 pixels and calculates optical flow on a 4x binned and cropped area at 250 Hz (bright, outdoors), giving it a very high light sensitive. It also works indoors and in low outdoor light conditions without the need for an illumination LED (at 120 Hz (dark, indoors). The other great feature of this sensor is that it can be re-programmed to do any other low level computer vision tasks using the 752×480 pixel camera and the 168Mhz Cortex M4F CPU.
