I’m very new in Ardurover, but have some experiments in Arducopter with APM and Pixhawk.
My problem is very simple : i would like to have live information about the distance the rover does with no GPS.
I’m using a 6x6 Wild Thumper underground for photos shooting and inspection.
The Wheel encoder guide of Ardurover explains how to connect to a Pixhawk on the AUX output (http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-wheel-encoder.html ).
On APM, there is no EKF, so the parameters to modify to use the Wheel encoder are not present… but I think we don’t need EKF to say how many rotations a Wheel made…?
On PixFalcon and Mini Pixhawk, there is no AUX output, so impossible to connect the two wheels encoders?
The only solution would be the “big” PixHawk and Dropix to use the EKF, and no way to connect encoder on APM to know the distance (without position)
Thanks for your response
