  problem with signalk
Posted by: Luckbert - 09-07-2018, 10:30 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (11)

Hello, everybody, 
I reinstalled surgery. 
I have a problem with signalalk . 
See the screenshot . There are 2 bugs that I don't get fixed. 
Do you have any ideas, or do I have to start over and reinstall? 
Greetings Jürgen

  No wireless interfaces found

Just installed OpenPlotter 1.0.0 alpha on mt Raspberry Pi 3+ and receive the error that "No wireless interfaces found." Searched this forum and the web and found documentation to uncheck "Enable access point" on the WiFi AP tab.  But, this version does not have a WiFi AP tab. There is a Network tab, but no option to disable WiFi AP.

  rudder position after hand steering
Posted by: Saqqara - 09-03-2018, 03:03 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (3)

I am using the wheel drive from an Autohelm 4000. There is a little lever to engage and disengage the motor for hand steering. It merely snugs up or loosens the belt. I assume that the old autopilot never knew where the rudder was except when at the stop from feedback from the straining motor. There is no sensor or end switches.

If I calibrate the rudder in pypilot, and then disengage to hand steer and then reengage, the autopilot won't be aware of where it is anyway, right? 


  web interface doesn't refresh properly
Posted by: Saqqara - 09-03-2018, 11:37 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

In Android/Chrome I am able to use the web interface somewhat, but the control page doesn't refresh properly to show, for example, that the AP button is engaged (green). I have to go to another tab and back again.

Running op 1.1 alpha with pypilot updated from github today.


  Under what conditions is steering by wind available?
Posted by: Saqqara - 09-03-2018, 11:35 AM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

I have a wind instrument at masthead, coming in as NMEA 0183 serial and appearing in SignalK on openplotter. However I am unable to select Wind in pypilot.

Running op 1.1 alpha with pypilot updated from github today.


Sorry, I see this in another post and will try:

You can assign serial ports to pypilot. If they have wind or gps, they will also be relayed over tcp to other programs like opencpn on port 20220. This is ideal because the autopilot gets the data with minimum latency.

You can also send the nmea data to pypilot via port 20220. So if opencpn has wind/gps already, then make a connection to tcp port 20220, and make sure it is marked for output. This will add latency to the measurement, but still works in practice.


  output battery volts to signal k
Posted by: Saqqara - 09-03-2018, 11:29 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (3)

Since you are measuring this anyway, perhaps we can get this in signal k? 

Not important for me as I have another ADC chip, but this could simplify hardware for some.


  High Python CPU usage on start
Posted by: RedRyder - 09-03-2018, 08:53 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - No Replies

Hi, all-

I have been experiencing high Python CPU usage on OpenPlotter startup.

Here is my configuration:
OpenPlotter 1.1.0alpha
Raspberry Pi 3B+

Devices connected:

Output as requested:
Code:
pi@openplotter:~ $ openplotter
No IMU detected
No pressure sensor detected
No humidity sensor detected

Condition:
When I start/restart the Raspberry PI, there is high CPU usage after startup.  When I look at what's causing it using htop (or top) here is what I see:

Code:
pi@openplotter:~ $ htop

I'm not sure what's causing this. I can kill the process, and everything *seems* to operate fine until the next reboot.

I suspect it might have something to do with some sort of signal K plugin, but I'm not sure what. I saw this condition before, and started fresh with a new installation of OpenPlotter. It worked fine for a couple of days, but then started the behavior again.

Help, please!
