Auto-start DCM on Boot
The Dronecode Camera Manager (DCM) build process generates a file dronecode-camera-manager.service that can be used to help auto-start DCM on boot on platforms that support the systemd service.
Auto-start on Intel Aero
DCM is already integrated with systemd on Intel Aero (for both Yocto and Ubuntu OS).
The only work required is to ensure that dronecode-camera-manager.service is placed in /lib/system/system.
Auto-start on Other Platforms
The following steps can be used to integrate DCM with systemd on a new platform.
- Enable systemd, following the OS-specific instructions for your platform.
- Put the dronecode-camera-manager.service file in /lib/system/system directory (the file is generated in the root of the DCM repository when you build the Camera Manager).
- Reload systemd daemon
Enable the service to start DCM automatically on subsequent boot
systemctl enable dronecode-camera-manager.service
You can also start the service just for the current session:
systemctl start dronecode-camera-manager.service
