Many distance measurement sensors can be used recently for PX4 environment. They are widely used in drone industry. Omnipresense is one of the lead manufactuteres of precise distance and speed measurement sensors widely known in industry, Their sensors are being used on Road Speed monitoring devices and are trusted by governments and police, Recently, drones have found their ways to help police monitoring traffic in many ways. For instance, accidents can be analyzed much faster by an autonomous drone sent to the location than police themselves. We have implemented one of these Speed measurement sensors (OPS243-C) into an X500 drone frame equipped with PX4. The sensor is connected via serial interface directly to Pixhawk and the driver has already been implemented for it. The data is being received real time on the ground station. The user can easily use Qgroundcontrol software, send the drone to the required place on top of a highway lane and monitor passing by cars' speed. These speed values could be saved as a log text and analyzed later. The drone is equipped with a camera so the plate numbers can also be attached to the speed logs.
