I’m using an iMac, or macbook, to connect to the ROV, purchased in August 2019 but only assembled in the last week. I start up QGroundControl and get nothing: “Waiting for Vehicle Connection”.
-I’ve changed the USB connection to the specified IP addresses in the network settings. No firewalls.
-QGC Autoconnect settings are as specified in the ardusub troubleshooting doc. Though I note that in their screenshot that “Pixhawk” isn’t ticked?
-I can ping 192.168.2.1 and the pings return fine with no packet loss. I can connect to the companion computer through http://192.168.2.2:2770/system, I’ve connected the unit to wifi, downloaded Companion software etc. The active service list seems fine. The detected devices are the camera and “Pixhawk1”. The guide says it should say “Pixhawk Autopilot”?
-I’ve tried two different computers (iMac (High Sierra) and Macbook (Catalina)). Tried two different USB connectors.
-Tried pulling the electronics out and connecting directly to the Pixhawk. I’m not 100% sure I did this correctly. There’s a micro-USB on the Pixhawk itself, and one on the board that the Pixhawk is mounted on. I’ve tried connecting to both of them. On QGroundControl I’m still getting nothing. “Waiting for Vehicle Connection”.
Would anybody be able to offer suggestions? I’m happy to provide screenshots or any other details that might be helpful.
