I have located a plug in that detects range of objects using the camera and the laser but I don’t know if it will work on the 2.8 platform. I am also not sure how to load a plugin on the cockpit. Has anyone tried to do this and have they found the laser range finder useful?
The plugin will need a couple tweaks, but will work with the software on the upcoming image. You should be able to find other threads on this. Basically the current security model in chrome requires the images to be served from the same domain and port as the rest of the Web page. In the new image we are using a nginx proxy to do just that.
Thanks a lot for your advice I will get back to you when the new image comes out. Cheers
