NAME

UGsmooth - send UGear-formatted GPS data to a FlightGear instance

SYNOPSIS

UGsmooth --help
| --infile infile_name [options]...
| --flight flight_dir [options]...
| --serial dev_name --outfile outfile_name [options]...

DESCRIPTION

UGsmooth is a utility that reads GPS data in UGear format from a text file, a directory containing flight data or from a device connected to the serial port, parses it and sends it to a FlightGear instance for replaying.

OPTIONS

--help
Display usage information and exit.
--infile infile_name
Read GPS data from infile_name.
--flight flight_dir
Read GPS data from the flight directory named flight_dir.
--serial dev_name
Read GPS data from the serial device named dev_name.
--outfile outfile_name
Save the data retrieved from the device to outfile_name.
--hertz frequency
Specify the frequency to use for sending data to the FlightGear instance. By default, events are sent at a frequency of 60 Hz.
--host hostname
Send the data to the FlightGear instance running on hostname.
 
If --host is not specified, the default is to send the data to localhost.
--broadcast
Send flight data model and control data as broadcast packets.
--opengc-port port
Set the port OpenGC data should be sent to. By default, data is sent to port 6000.
--fdm-port port
Set the port flight data model data should be sent to. By default, data is sent to port 5505.
--ctrls-port port
Set the port control data should be sent to. By default, data is sent to port 5506.
--groundtrack-heading
Calculate the aircraft heading from the GPS velocity instead of using the raw heading recorded by the device.
--ground-speed
Calculate the ground speed from the GPS velocity instead of using the raw speed recorded by the device.
--estimate-control-deflections
Estimate control deflections from the angular velocities instead of using the raw deflections recorded by the device.
--altitude-offset meters
Add the specified offset (in meters) to the altitude sent to FlightGear.
--skip-seconds seconds
Do not transmit the first seconds seconds of data.
 
This option is ignored when reading GPS data from a serial device.
--no-real-time
Do not update the elapsed time.
--ignore-checksum
Do not discard data with invalid checksums.
 
This option is ignored when reading GPS data from a flight directory.
--sg-swap
Activate the special double swap logic for the (non-standard) stargate double format.

EXIT STATUS

UGsmooth exits with 0 on success, with -1 if the syntax of the command-line arguments is wrong or an error occurs.
