We are using a skid steer boat. The main task of the boat is to stay as precisely as possible at a predefined position. This works excellent as long as there is some light or strong wind which pushes the boat always to the leeward edge of the Loiter Radius.
But if there is absolutely no current and no wind we expected the boat to switch off both motors as long as it is inside of the Loiter Radius. Our LOIT_RADIUS = 5 m, and LOIT_TYPE = 1.
We noticed that the boat moves very slowly from the edge of the Loiter Radius towards the Loiter Center and continues in the same direction until it reaches the edge of the Loiter Radius on the opposite side.
Do we misinterpret the information “Vehicle will drift when within this distance of the target position” when we expect the motors to be switched off?
Any help is appreciated
