Blockchain node in space
The team has completed the development of the new version space node telemetry data acquisition module. According to the previous telemetry data collection table, the acquisition module collects the key data information of the load board every 500 ms and stores it in the specified file. When the OBC requests load telemetry data, the on-board software will send the latest telemetry data to the OBC via the CAN bus.
