When joining a mission, you now can choose different device types other than a drone to stream telemetry data or video from using the DroneSense Mobile app.
For example, you can use an iPhone to stream video, or just broadcast the GPS location of the device to provide additional "boots on the ground" information during an event, such as a search and rescue.
To use a non-drone device in a mission, complete the following steps.
- Log in to DroneSense Mobile, or leave your current mission to get to the Mission selection screen.
- On the Select Mission screen, choose the mission from the left column -- but don't hit the join mission button yet.
- On the right side below Call Sign, tap the Device Type selector.
- Choose the type of device or vehicle you want represented on the map. This field defaults to Drone, so if you only need to adjust this setting if you're using a different kind of device.
- Tap Join Mission.
