Hello, I was interested in trying an automotive radar for collision avoidance on a UGV. Automotive radar should be cheaper than LIDAR due to scale production and no moving parts, and requires less…Continue

I think OpenROV (http://openrov.com/) could be one source of inspiration. They've used an ethernet umbilical cord that could be replaced with wifi. Using a small linux computer on the rover means you can benefit from the broad…"
Congratulations for your success, however I think there are some misconceptions about what is going on.
RN-XV is a 3.3v part (OG also points this out). Data sheet https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10822 page 2 electrical characteristics,…"
No I don't have an APM, I use an Arduino Mega 1280. Also I don't have 2.4 GHz XBee, my comments only apply to RN-XV + XBee Explorer Regulated.
For RN-XV, before connecting to Arduino, I set up the RN-XV's baud rate and…"
I am trying to do what you did. But when I power the sensor with 12V with a power supply, there is no current shown in the meter. Therefore, I can not get anything from the CAN bus. What kind of power supply did you use? Is there anything…"
"yeah me too, dodgy brushed esc won't go reverse until the car has stopped. I think sending reverse while travelling forward has some weak brake effect like tying the motor terminals together.
Measuring wheel rotation is very useful. Makes…"
"Okay; I'm way out of my league on this one, but it's to tempting to resist.....
If installed on a suitable UAV airframe, can this system work with the APM to execute a failsafe function, should the UAV encounter, if I…"
