"Finally had a chance to do some testing today. The compass seems to be reasonably accurate when driving manually while connected to MP.
Also tried a couple more guided mode missions. It appears that the vehicle is going in the opposite direction…"
"Thanks Ray. Does the low speed heading problem include not going in the right general direction? I could understand weaving toward the destination. In this case, it typically ends up going in no discernible general direction."
"The speed issue is solved. The problem I'm having now is with weaving. I'm using a uBlox mounted on a mast and have the internal compass disabled. I've checked for magnetic interference from the motor - it doesn't appear to be a problem. I've looked…"
"@LaserDev Do you have any experience connecting an SF11 directly to a companion computer? What connection do you recommend. I would have done i2c. However, I'm using an Odroid XU4 and the i2c is horrible. It's a good board in general but the i2c…"
"Thank you, Ray. I have the cruise speed set at 0.5 m/s (I want it to move slowly during initial testing) and I think the cruise throttle set to 50%. Is that a reasonable value? I haven't touched the slew rate -- it is still at the default. I'll…"
"Like Akshay, I am coming from the Copter side. I have my rover setup with an onboard Odroid XU4 and Dronekit-Python. When I run a simple script to do a single simple_goto, the rover takes off much faster than it should. In the script I set the…"
Hi everyone. For about a year and a half, I've been working with Iris+ drones on projects involving computer vision, and pathfinding using genetic algorithms. A couple of months ago, I decided to branch out and try a rover. I bought an Axial SX10…
"Since this thread has meandered a bit, I hope that no one minds if I ask a somewhat related question.
I'm connecting a LidarLite v2 to an Odroid XU4 to use for obstacle detection. This will allow us to incorporate the Lidar data into our path…"
"Thanks @LaserDev. My students and I write software to control our MAVs. We almost never fly manually so Guided mode support is important. Ultimately, what we want to do is incorporate two Lidar units -- one for altitude and the other facing…"
