Re: [Paparazzi-devel] current sensor

Hi Ana,

the easiest way is to add the appropriate subsystem to your firmware section:
    <subsystem name="current_sensor">
      <param name="ADC_CURRENT_SENSOR" value="ADC_4"/>

Which in this case will result in nothing more than one makefile line:

Then you just have to define MilliAMpOfAdc(_adc) in BAT as you
probably already did.
You can also have a look at the ENAC/fixedwing/funjet2.xml airframe as
an example.

So I guess the thing you missed is to define USE_ADC_4 to enable that
adc and to use ADC_CHANNEL_CURRENT instead of ADC_CURRENT.
That is if I understood correctly what you already defined... maybe
next time include the relevant parts of your config so it is more

Cheers, Felix
