I’m looking to try to build a robot that will navigate fields accurately while selectively spraying weeds.
The spraying part will be done via switches/relays/solenoids, and doesn’t need to be connected to the controller.
The chassis will be a converted 36v mobility scooter, which has some excellent components by the way.
I can fabricate and wire to a very high standard, and have access to good equipment including a reasonably serious 3D printer, but my programming/code skills are non existent.
I’m looking for the best plug and play option, and am considering the Pixhawk 2.1 with the RTK gps.
I’m seeing a second GPS module is required for the base station…is that a second here+, or is it a part that’s included in the set?
Does the base station/laptop have to be setup for the entire operation, or can it be switched off and packed up after kick off?
Is the Pixhawk gear worth the spend, or is there a better option that is simpler to use?
Basically what I want to do could be considered similar to an automated electric lawn mower project.
Would appreciate any advice.
