Hello, we are a small group of students tasked with designing an autonomous boat. The tasks we need to accomplish include:
- Path routing
- Collision avoidance/object detection
As far as we can tell, the first two requirements can be met with relative ease using ArduRover. Our main concern is whether or not ArduRover is capable of collision avoidance akin to the collision avoidance outlined in the tutorial for ArduCopter:
We are also wondering which type of sensor would be most sensible to accomplish this task (ultrasonic/SONAR, LIDAR, 3D depth camera such as Intel RealSense, etc). The board we are using is the Pixhawk 2.4.8.
If anyone could point to specific resources that may help us accomplish this task, and recommend compatible hardware/sensors to mount on our boat, we would greatly appreciate it.
