Setting up the Houston App to work over Wi-Fi

The Houston App mode over Wi-Fi is used for engineering missions, it is possible to receive all data packets and build graphs of changes in time of the values of the AVS, magnetometer, solar sensors, as well as the speed of rotation of the reaction wheel (RW).

After loading the onboard Raspberry Pi and the appearance of the Orbicraft 3D functional kit access point of the Orbicraft3D _ ### view, you should connect your computer to this access point and launch the Houston App

In the Houston App, go to the File → Parameters menu.

In the serverAddress field, enter and press OK.

Restart the Houston App

In this operating mode, the beacon and heartbeat signals are not displayed. But a large amount of data is received from the AVS and the magnetometer.

If you switch to the AVS tab, you can see a graph of the angular acceleration versus time, automatically built based on the incoming data.

When you switch to the Magnetometer tab, you can see a graph of the change in the direction of the magnetic field vector, automatically built based on the incoming data.
