AR_WPNav: bug fix #12119

wants to merge 1 commit into from

commented Aug 22, 2019

This is small bug (I think) fix that in combination with #12117 allows sailboats to work with the avoidance path planner, this is a example with Dijkstra's.

a small improvement could be made to make the Dijkstra's code work better for sailboats, It should be possible to skip intermediate points in some cases, for example here it could have jumped onto the next point and saved some tacks.

but all in all it basically 'just works'

This 2nd one is not a bug actually. It's not really in the mavlink spec but there are two mavlink messages that we take advantage of to show the user both the intermediate and final destination. So the "POSITION_TARGET_GLOBAL_INT" message is used to send the intermediate position. The "NAV_CONTROLLER_OUTPUT" is used to send the final position.

If necessary we can discuss with @tridge on whether we are doing the correct thing or not by using these two mavlink messages.

@IamPete1, nice find on the first one. Can you remove the 2nd change and then I'll merge this, txs!
