Guided Mode with WaterLinked to acoustic position

Hi,

we want to use a BlueROV heavy equipped with WaterLinked system to do position hold based on the position information from the WaterLinked system. The WaterLinked will be installed on a ship with heading information provided from the ship to the WaterLinked.
In our case we want to set the target position from the ROV in WaterLinked “acoustic reference system”, not in the GPS (global reference system) format which is possible with the ArduSub GUIDED Mode? Is that possible? It would also be great if we can set a fixed yaw angle while the ROV is traveling.

Best regards
Mirko

I’m not that familiar with the WaterLinked system. But I think if you set up its gps as static and that could work the way you want to.

Also note that the GUIDED mode is pretty experimental and not officially supported.
