Autonomous Boat-waypoints via GPS

Postby shi kuan » Fri Oct 09, 2015 9:39 pm

Hello!
I want to build autonomous boat, controlled by waypoints via GPS.
http://users.libero.it/riccardo.rocca/0 ... t2011.html

Some questions:
1. Its possible to build the boat using Cytron product?
2. If so,what is the necessary product to be considered. I have purchased GSM modem and still wondering if it is applicable.
3. Maybe there is a ready-made solution?

Best regards

The link is broken, at least for me, I cannot see the page.

We do not have the material to build the boat, but I guess the controller and other electronics stuff is usable.

You need to list out the parts that you want, it is easier for us to recommend.

I have made a collision avoidance system with simple ready-made code. What i did was using a ultrasonic sensor that switches off one of two dc motor so that it can steer away from floating object. Now i'm thinking of giving it a way-point to head to and return to its original. It also can return to its original position when battery is running low.
This is the link that inspired me.

The code:
code.zip
not really understand the code, so i have doubt whether it is applicable in my case

It is not possible for us to go through all the codes :)

But I guess you can utilize some of Cytron stuff and building it will need your effort.
- Promini
- Digital compass
- XBee PRO series 1
- SKGPS
- MD30C or MDD10A depending on the motor current.
- DC motor, full range is here.
- Li-po battery
It is not direct replacement, that is why you need to try it out.
