Hi I am wondering if there is any update on the Failsafe - Enable Continue Mission in Auto option similar to that in copter etc.
When I am connected the Rover / Boat and look at setup menu (Failsafe’s) it lets you pick the continue mission option in the drop down menu on mission planner, but when I read the Failsafe pages it says after 4.1 or so you use the FS_OPTIONS instead and there is no similar option?
Also I saw a similar thread (Do Nothing Option) thread from Jul 2018 where it was discussed and recommended to be added as an issue for the to-do list; is there any update on this capability? Is it something that could be implemented with a script?
FS_THR_ENABLE set to 2
There is a FS_GCS_ENABLE parameter also if you want to set that. These are not included in the FS_OPTIONS bitmask like Copter is.
@rmackay9 perhaps these should be incorporated in an FS_OPTIONS bitmask for Rover as well?
Dave and Yuri, thanks for the rapid reply:
Dave, when I set FS_THR_ENABLE to 2, does that actually enable that function? I still get that option in the dropdown for RC Failsafe Enabling it in the Mission Planner GUI does actually Set FS_THR_EN to 2, but it doesn’t seem to be implemented in code. It still seems to deault to using only the options in the FS_ACTION Parameter, which is really just various forms of RTL, nothing and hold.
I checked out the FS_GCS_ENABLE options and that did include the continue with mission in auto, does that actually work??? Have you tested it?
Again Guys thanks for the replies.
Sorry for the slow reply. Yes, I think it would be a good addition to Rover/Boat…
So just for clarity, is the FS_THR_ENABLE used in Rover algorithms (as it still has the parameter and a value of 2 for continue mission) or Does the Failsafe algorithm now only use the FS_ACTION parameter?
Also does the FS_GCS_ENABLE option for continue with autonomous mission still work or is that similar to the status of the FS_THR_ENABLE?
