Every Rover deserves a home

When your rover is tired and needs to call it a day for recharging its batteries, it needs a home. But to come out the next day, it needs to backout... i.e. to have a backwards function... sort of like a copter's landing and take off.I realize there are countless requests of all the volunteer programmers for improvements, but I'm hoping this thread might inspire a rover programmer to bring a backwards function to our members.Happy Holiday'sRoboBillSee More

"I'm no Piksi/Pixhawk expert and I'm trying to do the same basic pattern. I believe I don't need any more "modules". You might also look at the Piksi forum. Hopefully there you can find out what still needs to be done. "

"When I fired up my rover, the mission planner showed its direction to off by more than 180 degrees. After some simple driving around, the orientation started to resemble the rover. Way cool. Thanks for clarifying these steps RoboBill"

Hi RoboBill,

I saw your "open source" radar system post and I was interested in helping out.  I am pretty familiar with ROS.  I don't have the hardware but that hasn't stopped me before.  I have written quite a bit of code for rosserial.

Let me know what you think.

Regards,

Tony
