Bluerov-ros-pkg issue

(Vitaliy Yakimenko) #1

Hi All, I need a little help!

looks like I’m stuck at this point, it seems that the file ardupilot.git has been deleted?

I looked it up at this address (https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot.git) but it is not there. Can someone send it or tell me please how can I solve this issue?


BlueROV compatible vehicles use a mavlink compatible device as the interface to low-level sensors and actuators. For the BlueROV, we are using an ArduPilot Mega (APM) 2.6.

We have a slight modification to the stock APMrover code for use with an APM 2.6. Please upload the following code to the APM.

git clone -b br-ros-rov https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot.git
cd ardupilot/APMrover2
make configure
# gedit ../config.mk&
# sudo apt-get install gawk
make upload

Note to self: In the future, try out a PX4 with the “OFFBOARD” mode.

Hey Vitaliy,

The repo seems fine to me… I can paste that address into my browser and I can also run the git clone -b br-ros-rov https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot.git command just fine.

Could you try again? Make sure you are connected to the internet before trying again.

Hi, i know it has been a long time since this was posted, but i recently encountered a new error with tho pkg.

When i try to git clone -b br-ros-rov https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot.git

i get an error:

fatal: unable to access ‘https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot.git/’: server certification verification failed. CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt CRLfile: none

have there been any changes that havent made it to the setup guide yet?

or is there an sd card image anywhere that i could have?

Thanks for any advice :slight_smile:

Hi Vegard,

We are in the process of migrating to PixHawk hardware across the board and deprecating support for the APM. As a part of that effort, we have moved the location of the repository that you are looking for. The new address is https://github.com/bluerobotics/ardupilot-bluerov-apm. Documentation is being updated as we speak.

Additionally, we decided to hold off on releasing an SD card image until the platform is more mature. We are still rapidly iterating on our software and an SD image would be immediately out of date. We’ll have more information about an SD card image in a month at the earliest.
