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.

I'd like to add support for the rover using reverse in auto mode, so if it can get somewhere faster by going backwards it will. So I'm looking at how reverse is setup in the ArduRover code, and…Continue

Hi All,

The Rover T3 competition has closed for the present T3 competition 100m x 100m bow tie course.

Hopefully more of our members will want to compete in future T3s as they are a lot of fun as well as a way to get the most out of your rovers.

Regards,

Tom C AVD

@dr0n3droid,

The Auto Mode will also default to the Hold Mode at the end of a waypoint Mission or with the loss of the R/C connection.

@healthyfatboy,

Yes, you are correct that the rover will stay in the Hold Mode when going to the Auto Mode if there is no Mission loaded.

Regards,

TCIII AVD

Comment by dr0n3droid on August 5, 2015 at 8:41pm
Yeah, that too.

Comment by healthyfatboy on August 5, 2015 at 8:36pm

Okay, I figured it out. Unless you have a mission loaded, you can't get into AUTO mode. It always displays HOLD. I'm sure the GPS lock also applies like you mentioned.

Comment by Bo Barry on August 5, 2015 at 8:34pm

I too noticed that flight mode setting quirk.  I'm new with the Rover and haven't studied the modes yet,  so I'm no help yet.
