I want to make my rider lawn mower autonomous, however, I am more confused than ever about the hardware I need to make this work. I would like to be able to have pretty accurate GPS along with the ability for obstacle avoidance sensors. I think I need the rover firmware, but choosing hardware seems to be more difficult. I see a lot of people use the Pixhawk series, but I noticed something about it being outdated and or discontinued as well? What would be the best somewhat newest model that would allow for growth and is not immediately useless after a short amount of time? I read the guides on ardupilot, but I don’t know if I’m just flat out missing something or what, but everything does not seem as simple when choosing hardware, and there are so many options that it doesn’t make it as easy to choose. Also, I would like to be able to view the onboard camera as wellI, and the ability to take control with my rc controller (Radiolink AT10ll) if need be. Also, I would like to use Rover 4.0 or at least the newest firmware version if possible and I plan to use Mission Planner by the way.
Would the bundle below suffice or would I need something else? Telemetry radios, etc? Also, if it will work is there any place in the US I could order that to have it here much faster? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
