I built a boat that uses Pixhawk as its main controller with the Beta version of ArduRover. I am using the skid steering function and it works perfectly when controlling the boat manually. However, the boat does not steer towards any waypoints when switched to auto mode. Instead, the boat drives in circles with no increase in RPM of the motors and with what seems like, no sense of direction. The GPS works and there are no error messages.
When switching the boat to "RTL" it seems to turn to a certain heading and drive at full power to no end. When I turn to the boat 180 degrees in the opposite direction, and then switching to RTL then it will just drive off, full power, with no sense of direction.
Can anyone help out with this? Is the error in the Beta version of the software? I am aware that skid steer does not work in the current version of ArduRover. That is why I am running the beta version as skid steering is fixed.
This is a capstone project that my team and I are working on at the University of South Alabama.
