Before Posting an Issue

Hi All,

Before posting an issue or a problem in the ArduRover Discussion Forum, please check the wiki table of contents, review the firmware release notes in the subforum, and search that subforum for existing answers to your question. Help avoid duplicate threads by finding other members with the same issue and their solution.

When formulating your post, use a descriptive title such as "rover will not navigate to waypoints in the Auto mode" (not "HELP!" or "Problem").

Please include the following information to help diagnose your query:

  • Describe the problem you are having. What is the expected verses the observed behavior?
  • Provide hardware information such as the brand and version of your autopilot, GPS, radio, and compass, as well as any other pertinent details about your rover setup.
  • What version of the APM: ArdurRover2 firmware version are you running?
  • For navigation issues, provide your tlog and/or dataflash log. Click here for instructions on retrieving a dataflash log.

Thanks,  I had just found that info & concluded the same.  I'll just add it to a little Arduino and have it honk the horn occasionally,  and then louder when it gets near a car.  I'm crazy enough to send it on a mission in our neighborhood.  :)  Thanks again. Bo

Bo, this is the sonar setup page.  At the moment the sonar's guide the rover to go around an obstacle.  There is no way to do what you ask unless the software is changed.

 Switching from a quad to a Rover temporarily.  Where can I find info on how to 'use'  the sonar output to say sound a horn or stop the vehicle?   Bo
