Robosail Autopilot activated!


Today the RoboSail system was able to control the rudder. It seems like the Autopilot from the Robosail is working and so is one of the CAN displays. So I was able to turn active and inactive, and verify that it commenced the rudder. However the RoboSail GPU is not working, and thus the Odys it not working ether. I had to leave all tools and new equipment at home as of luggage restrictions on the flight. I will try to get some cables from an elector store at the airport to morrow to se if I can hack into the GPU and find a medicine. I opened the box to day, and ... well it's a prototype, like prototypes used to be some time back.
