"Gregory -  A slight alternative to option 1 would be using a motor controller that can parse the signal to differential. The Sabertooth series do this (check out the datasheet) - although the biggest they have is 60 amps I…"

"Differential thrust is not currently possible with the ardurover code directly, but can be accomplished with your motor controller or an additional microcontroller between the ardupilot and your motor controllers. As for your other requests, I…"

"DGPS is beginning to be used in smaller vessels, especially in survey work environments.  Would the offsets calculated from running a predetermined course vary with atmospheric or timing conditions? I had discounted that as practical only when…"

"@Anthony, My two rovers go virtually in a straight line between waypoints without any PID tuning. Having the correct steering direction command in the Autonomus mode is very important as it can be different from the Manul mode. Regards, TCIII"

Ardu-Boat first trial run...

Hello everyone!Just got back from the maiden voyage of my Ardu-Boat platofrm (APM 2.5) - and while the eventual end of the trial stemmed from a mechanical problem (gearbox wasn't great) - what I could test of the autopilot had miserable behavior.I think this might stem from the rudder driven steering (rather than front left right wheels as on a car). When switched to auto mode after establishing "safe" waypoints, the boat would turn away from all the waypoints and head towards shore, driving an…See More

"HI, My boat runs with PID settings P = 0.9 D = 0.07 I = 0.01 but it is controlled by one motor and one rudder so probably settings will be different. Also my goal speed is around 2 knots, if you plan to go fast reduce P value to prevent flips…"
