Ardupilot SITL Rover does not follow terrain

Hello there!

This is my first entry here, so if I’m doing something wrong, don’t hesitate to tell me!

For a demonstration purpose of my data visualisation tool ( I am asked to do a demonstration for the usage with a rover. I am able to get telemetry and send commands to both SITL simulations, MAVProxy and MissionPlanner, which is nice.

However, for both SITL simulations the rover does not follow the terrain, which makes it fairly boring. What I already tried without success:
Change altitute frame of mission waypoints to AGL (or TERRAIN) and then set an altitude 0 or 0.5
Try to set terrain parameters like TERRAIN_ENABLE or TERRAIN_FOLLOW, unfortunately they are not available in the Rover SITL

Anyone has an idea on how to make this work?

Thanks in advance!


You would need to dig a little in the simulation code as currently Rover is living into flat world !
