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.

Hello everyone,I'm trying to design and build an "open source" radar system. The premise is that while we have the hacked Neato and the RoboPeak system, I've not found anything for outdoor use. So…Continue

I understand that the SBUS output on the Pixhawk is NOT currently enabled. Does anyone know when this may happen and will it simply send the Pixhawk output signals  or also passthrough the incoming…Continue

Hi All,

For those of you who ordered a LIDAR-Lite, it looks like they will starting shipping product on October 13th.

As far as I know, the skid steering issue in the stable ArduRover2 v2.46 has yet to be resolved.

The skid steering function in the previous stable ArduRover2 version 2.45 works correctly.

very excited that we have a rover project that just came live, is the skid steering issue resolved? 

Comment by Thomas J Coyle III on September 15, 2014 at 5:54am

Hi All,

The skid (differential) steering in ArduRover2 stable version v2.46 is broken and our Developer/Programmer, Tridge, will not be available to fix it until after the AU OBC.

Please use either v2.44 or 2.45 from this repository Link

In some instances you have to use the "reverse" check box for either the ailerons or the throttle when in the Auto Mode compared to the Manual mode where you change the servo output direction in the transmitter.

Thanks for the reply Thomas.

I got it figured out.  I'm using a custom arduino based mixer. I had the throttle reversed. I adjusted my mixer and things look good now.

Cheers..  \o/

What value do you have your CRUISE_THROTTLE set to?

What value do you have your CRUISE_SPEED set to?

What value do you have your WAYPOINT_RADIUS set to?

How far is your first waypoint from the starting (home) point?

This is my first time setting up an APM,  

 I have everything working in "manual" mode good.

Throttle and steering respond to my radio and from the ground station joystick.

But when I go into "auto" mode, the steering is responding but I get no throttle, no forward speed.

I setup the configuration to what it says in the ArduRover setup guide. at

But it looks like there is some information missing from that page, It stops in mid word.

so I went on to here;

and set the parameters as described.

No Joy.....   Steering movement but no speed. Can someone tell me what I am missing please?

Thank you.....

Hi All,

It is official now!

Tridge has just announced the release of ArduRover2 v2.46 Link

Congratulations to Tridge and the Developer Team!



Comment by Thomas J Coyle III on August 10, 2014 at 3:54pm

Hi All,

I think that once Tridge is done with the AU Outback Challenge, we plan to release a stable ArduRover2 v2.46.

The new release will have the active braking and throttle slew rate adjustment functions.

Stay tuned:-)
