Good afternoon everyone. We have our BlueROV2 just about assembled, and I’m going through the final steps of gaining control over the vehicle.
For some reason, we do not have any vehicle control whatsoever. Let me show you what we’ve got.
System delivered in Summer 2016 with advanced electronics package.
Topside laptop is running Windows 8.1. QGroundControl can successfully pick up the video feed from the vehicle but there is no thruster control.
MicroSD card on Raspberry Pi has been loaded with the 2017-01-12-ardusub-raspbian.img, written with the Win32DiskImager software utility.
The PixHawk has been flashed via direct USB to the topside laptop using QGroundControl. I flashed the ArdSub-v2.px4 firmware to it.
When I power the sub, it beeps every 5 seconds (without stop). Running QGroundControl gives me video feed and also gives me compass and attitude display. However, if I run
sudo screen -r mavproxy
to see what mavproxy is doing, this is what we get:
And then it just hangs there. I’m kinda stuck at this point, and I’ve been reading through other posts here on the forums trying to find something similar…I’ve checked my connections, checked power, Windows firewall settings are open for me to run this software… Is there something flaky with how I have the Raspberry Pi set up to see the Pixhawk? The Pixhawk is the only component connected to a USB port on the Raspberry Pi.
