Updating RedEdge for Pix4Dfields

Pix4D's latest software, Pix4Dfields is compatible with RedEdge and RedEdge-M data. However, in order to work properly, a one-time configuration update of the camera may be required.

Determining if you need the update

Generally, any RedEdge purchased before June 10th will need the update. 

Otherwise, you can check for the presence of the updated calibration using the steps below:

  • Update the firmware to the latest version (3.4.0 or higher) via atlas.micasense.com
  • Connect to RedEdge wifi, and visit http://192.168.10.254/calibration/rig_relatives in a web browser.
  • If the camera has the required calibration, it will display it, indicating that the camera data is ready for Pix4Dfields:
{"0": [0.2, 0.1, 0.2], "1": [0.1, 0.2, 0.1]...
  • If not, a message should appear stating "No rig relative calibration available" and the camera requires an update to be used with Pix4D fields.

Preparing the camera 

  • Update the firmware to the latest version (3.4.0 or higher) via atlas.micasense.com
  • Provide your RedEdge serial number to MicaSense support and request your camera-specific update file.  

Updating the camera

  • Connect to RedEdge wifi (password "micasense")
  • Open http://192.168.10.254/mfg_cal_upload in your browser
  • Upload the provided file, <filename>.bin
  • You should see a confirmation message, "File successfully stored"
  • Restart the camera. The change will take affect after a power cycle.
