Device Diagnostics

The Device Diagnostics page, accessed by clicking the stethoscope icon, allows the operator to monitor navigational and operational data in real time. The Device Diagnostics page groups data by both device and function so that operators have an effective tool for easily understanding the health and status of the vehicle and vehicle subsystems. The Device Diagnostics page features two tabs: Vehicle Sensors and Vehicle Configuration.

Compass Rose

The compass rose displays the vehicle's instantaneous heading, pitch (P), and roll (R). A yellow breadcrumb trail shows the vehicle's heading history. If the vehicle is following an Auto Heading set point, the heading will display in green text and a green pointer will appear. If the red "COMMS" message appears, there is a problem determining the vehicle attitude. Right-clicking the compass rose provides a selection of compass rose settings including: the option to display the ship, choose between north-up and vehicle-up orientations, and speed up or slow down the breadcrumb trail. 

Altitude and Depth Gauges

The depth and altitude gauges are positioned below the compass rose. They display the vehicle's current altitude relative to the sea floor and the depth in meters.

Autopilot

The Balefire Workspace contains several autopilot functions that enable precise and accurate autopilot control over the vehicle. The autopilot functions can be used concurrently and can be used to fully automate vehicle motion, or to control the vehicle in fly-by-wire mode.

Cam

The Cam tab shows the tilt of the camera and enables the operator to take a photo by clicking the Take Snapshot button.

Overlay

The video HUD displays the vehicle's video feed. Additionally, the basic functions needed for navigation and control are included on the video HUD. The annotated image and accompanying table outline the overlay's functionality.
