Im new into the autopilot world boards. Im want to start a the project of an automated survey vessel to gather information from the sea.
Im at the stage of choosing a compatible board with ARDUPILOT. As far as Ive read, Pixhawk is the most used board to do this, Im struggling to find this at my location (SPAIN) and its a bit pricey.
I was thinking in using the Omnibus F4.
The idea is a simple boat model with a thruster and a rudder behind it. As addons, I was thinking in installing a object avoidance system included in the board.
Ive seen the list on https://ardupilot.org/rover/docs/common-autopilots.html#common-autopilots
I would appreciate any sort of guidance (similar projects, literature…)
Thanks for your time.
All the best,
