This SDK and the Blueye drones

A Blueye drone is normally controlled via a mobile device through the Blueye App (iOS/Android). The mobile device is connected via Wi-Fi to a surface unit, and the Pioneer or Pro is connected to the surface unit via a tether cable.

This python SDK exposes the functionality of the Blueye app through a Python object. The SDK enables remote control of the Blueye Pioneer and Blueye Pro as well as reading telemetry data and viewing video streams. It is not meant for executing code on the Pioneer. To control the drone you connect your laptop to the surface unit Wi-Fi and run code that interfaces with the Blueye Pro or Blueye Pioneer through the Pioneer Python object.

Check out the Quick Start Guide to get started with using the SDK.
