Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Doing my thesis on UAV auto-routing. Trying to figure out how to update waypoints autonomously on UAV for navigation versus manual ground station input.

"So you ran Follow Me while in Loiter mode?  I thought you had to be in Guided mode first?  I switcthed to Guided mode before checking the "Follow Me" box.  As soon as I switched to Guided mode, my quad took off, but I hadn't even check the "Follow M…"

"Has anyone tried "Follow Me" on the rovers with Andropilot?  I haven't seen alot of the rovers discussed.  I tried "Follow Me" on the rover today, and didn't get any response.  I tried even changing into Guided Mode before checking the Follow Me box…"

Hi,I just downloaded the Droid Planner 2 app and it happens to be the v2.8.1 _RC1:1) Does this version support ArduRover?  I noticed in the settings, you can set the default vehicle to ArduCopter, ArduPlane, or ArduRover.  However I've seen no docum…

"I made my vehicle go into "Guided" mode from my Python script. However, I'm trying to create a safety control in my Python script so if I flip the Radio Control from Auto to Manual, the vehicle will stop running the Python script.  As of now, withou…"

"Hi,

Hopefully you can help me.  I've tried going through and studying the documentation, but still don't know where to go.  I'm trying to use mavproxy to build a ground station similar to Mission Planner.  However, I don't need all the GUI's.  I ju…"

Stefan Lane Hardy replied to Stefan Lane Hardy's discussion Python with Rovers (swarming w/ delay)
"To clarify, it looks like if any one of those 3 lines of code is commented out, then the delay goes away.  Therefore, I'm pretty sure it's not only the altitude line of code.  I'm thinking that when all 3 values are set, the delay comes from Mission…"

Hi,I wrote a script with Python to run with rovers on Mission Planner.  The function of the script is essentially the same function as the Swarm application available from the Ctrl+F command on Mission Planner.  There are two vehicles involved, a le…

Stefan Lane Hardy replied to Dominik Füß's discussion Mission Planner - Python Script
"Do you have to set an altitude for a waypoint to be set and the vehicle follow it?

I ask because I wrote a script for the rovers and used the same lat, long, and alt waypoint setting lines you used here.  In addition, I'm operating with mission pla…"

Stefan Lane Hardy commented on Chris Anderson's blog post ArduRover Swarming Demo
"How did you get this working?  I've been trying it with Mission Planner from the Ctrl+F/Swarm screen, but it won't work with me.  It recognizing both vehicles, but it will only affect the leader.  The follower won't follow when the leader is moved. …"

Hello,Does anyone know if it is possible to have multiple simultaneous MAV links using APM planner 2.0?  Someone said they saw a picture of at least 2 MAV links in the flight plan of APM planner 2.0.  I tried connecting two autopilots through the US…
