(iOS) How to synchronize and upload a mission to the cloud

There are two post-flight actions once the mission is flown:

  • Synchronization: It consists in generating the project file (.p4d) and downloading the images from the drone to the mobile device. At the end of the flight, the mission is by default synchronized when the drone comes back and lands. If the automatic synchronization is deactivated or if the synchronization is aborted, it can be still initiated or restarted later.
 
Note: Mission synchronization requires connection with the drone. If the synchronization fails, it is still possible to get the captured images from the drone. For more information: 204911905.
 
Note: After successful synchronization, the .p4d file and images can still be extracted from the mission folder when connecting the mobile device to a computer. For more information: 214516203.

 

  • Upload: It consists in sending the project file (.p4d) and images of the synchronized mission to the cloud for online processing. The results can then be visualized, analyzed and shared. For more information: 208278623.
 
Note: Mission upload requires the synchronization to be successful and Internet connection. If the upload fails, it is still possible to process online after having transferred the project to a computer. For more information: 215858503.

 

Synchronization

1. Open the app.
2. In the Home screen, select Mission Manager.
3. In the Mission Manager screen, select the project of the mission to be synchronized. The status should be  ic_syncstate_flown.png.
4. Turn on the drone and the remote controller. Depending on the drone, make also sure the Wi-Fi of the device is activated or connect the device via the USB cable to the remote controller. For more information, see step 6.: 204692015.
5. In the Project view, in the options panel, tap bu_download_images.PNG. The app automatically connects to the drone and the download starts.
6. Once the synchronization is successful the project has the status ic_syncstate_downloaded.png in the Mission Manager screen.
