I have a pixhawk (1) with rover firmware (latest) with a Roboteq 2260 motor driver. The Roboteq is driving 2 independent 24 volt motors. The chassis measures 4 ft by 2 ft and can turn on a dime. The unit goes forward and backward. Manual is working fine. However Auto has a few quirks.
- At the end of a mission it goes into reverse (not desirable) I would like it to just stop
- I have arranged a lane like mission pattern. The turns are 180 each time. In auto it makes turns that are too large. I need them to be much tighter.
- In learning mode the wp are being recorded without any lat/long data. Older versions were fine! is there a fix for this
4 Lastly can I control the direction the unit turn when making a 180. i.e. I would like the unit to consistently turn to the left. Can this be fixed?
I have made the way points as small as 0.5 meter as I want accuracy. I am using rtk and the navigation is excellent. The tracking between the wp’s is good the as unit is on the edge of wavering. However when I get to the waypoint the unit is turning less crisply than it physically could do.
I have read the “Tuning steering and navigation for a Rover” section on the wiki however I am a little confused with the some of the parameters
Which of the parameters have the most affect on the turning response when you require it to make a 180?
Also is this a pixhawk issue of is it a Roboteq issue i.e. it may be limiting the motors in some way and there restricting the pixhawk to t lazy turn
I can not provide more data at this time as the pixhawk is not with me at the time of writing this post. I will be able to supply more info in the next few days
