I have been playing with the v2.49 APMRover firmware. The manual/learning & auto modes work perfectly.
However, I have added one Maxbotics MB1240 XL Maxsonar EZ4 sensor, to the A0 pin of my APM2.5.
I checked out the instructions for adding the sonar sensors appears. The params described at the following link:
rover.ardupilot.com/wiki/common- … r-sensors/
appear to be outdated. But, based on the notes for the RANGE_FINDER related params, I things up.
Under the tuning menu, I do see the readings from the sonar sensor, so the sensor appears to be working.
But, when I switch to Steering mode, the wheels turn right and the rover goes in a circle, even if there are no obstacles. I am unable to use the steering radio controls any more, other than throttle forward.
So, I switched to learning mode; made it learn some way points by flipping the CH7 switch. When I move it to auto mode, it does not follow the waypoints. The rover seems to have a mind of it’s own.
Anyone seen this?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
