Tuning Waypoint Turn Speed (ver 3.1 and older)¶
These instructions are relevant for Rover-3.1 and older. For newer versions of the Rover firmware please refer to the navigation tuning guide.
The SPEED_TURN parameters are used to set the percentage reduction in throttle when turning around a waypoint and the distance before a target when the Rover will start to slow down.
The two parameters are listed below:
- Range 0-100 Units: percent Increment 1 (50)
- The percentage to reduce the throttle while turning. If this is 100% then the target speed is not reduced while turning. If this is 50% then the target speed is reduced in proportion to the turn rate, with a reduction of 50% when the steering is maximally deflected.
- Range 0-100 Units: meters Increment .1 (50)
- The distance to the next turn at which the rover reduces its target speed by the SPEED_TURN_GAIN. |
The parameters are set in the Mission Planner CONFIG/TUNING | Basic Tuning page:
All parameters may be adjusted in the “Advanced Parameter List” in Mission Planner). All the Rover user settable parameters are listed in APMrover2 Parameters.
