Re: Autonomous Boat

I'm just starting out with the same project. I have a pi, and that's it hahahaha. I'd love to do the https://www.microtransat.org challenge but if I could get a boat to go round a lake, I'd take that! Glad to hear that! :lol: Hope to hear more from you, especially with any problems encountered just...

Re: Autonomous Boat

The problem with GPS/GLONASS for a model boat is that it is not very precise. A 3-4 meter potential error is unlikely to matter much for a full size boat on the ocean (unless you are docking, when someone will hopefully be looking at the dock!), but it will make life difficult for an autonomous mod...

Re: Autonomous Boat

The big picture of autonomous boats consists of two things: 1) Resilient PNT (Position Navigation Time) You should not rely on a single source for the position of the boat, the direction and speed of the boat, the time. 2) Situations awareness Is there something going on that you should take care o...

Autonomous Boat

I'm currently working on this autonomous boat project using Raspberry Pi 3B+. The idea is to use the GPS and compass to implement the autonomous system. However, I am not sure which components (GPS & Compass) to use in the project. Are there any recommendations on the GPS and Compass that are suitab...
