I guess I am going to keep adding to the post until some knowledgeable person also decides to chime in and help out
I am trying to sort out some basics. They may seem simple to the experienced however I still find these concepts a little challenging
From my reading it seems that there are 2 ways to set up the steering on a rover.
Method 1. Esc for Forward Back and a servo for left Right. these will be controlled by the rc radios from aileron and throttle
Method 2 The ESC and servo are replace by a dual motor controller and two motors
The motor controller can be set up either mixed or independent modes. If mixed is selected the the behaviour of this is very much like method 1. ie the rc sticks aileron controls L/R and the throttle controls F/B. The motors are coordinated
If independent is selected then the aileron controls one motor and the throttle controls the other motor .So now we are controlling the motors individually and not coordinated together. If this is the case then you need to select Skidsteer for the Pixhawk to make the system produce coordinated F/B and L/R commands. ( I think this is the case)
I am discussing this because I am trying to improve the turning capability of my Bot in auto mode. It works well in manual and learning. As explained before the Bot can turn on a dime in manual however in Auto it make large turns around the way point when I want a crisp 180 degree turn.
I am enclosing a list of my parameters
I would appreciate if someone would engage and assist me to set up is Bot.
