After working with the BlueRov2 simulations with Gazebo and SITL for a while, we are now starting with the actual rover. We set up the bluerov, we have the waterlinked GPS working reasonably well. The robot and GPS are calibrated, we can use the joystick to move around and the position on the GPS looks correct…
However, as soon as we switch from one of the basic modes (stabilize, manual or depth hold – all work fine) to any other GPS-enabled mode like Guided, Circle, Pos hold etc, everything goes crazy: the bluerov goes in some random direction and keeps moving. We don’t have a big enough pool to see if it stops at some point. Could it be some parameters that we need to tweak? We are using the default params.
Thanks for your help!
