Re: PyPilot

Hello Sean,

Re: PyPilot

I am very interested in Pypilot in my 50ft Beneteau sailing boat. A have an old Raymarine mfd and a new SIMRAD mfd, all connected through a SHIPMODUL to NMEA0183, NMEA2000, TCP and WIFI. My Raymarine AP is prolly older than I am and not particularly good in heavy conditions. I will use it as a spare.

PyPilot seems very interesting, waiting for the heavy duty motor controller.

Here's my Q: would it be possible for Pypilot to masquerade as a Navico AP and/or a Raymarine AP? That way I can control it from my MFD. I have only seen this being done once, whereby I can control my Ray AP from my phone. I feel this could massively increase interest!

PyPilot in network

Question: I have a mixed jumble of old and new hardware on the boat. NMEA0183 wind / AP (Raymarine), NMEA2000 DPT / AIS, all converting to and fro using a SHIPMODUL box which also puts it on TCP and WiFi. Nothing much I cannot send, receive or convert.

1. Wil the PyPilot use the necessary (wind) info (either through NMEA0183 or WiFi)?
2. Can I use the rudder reference thingy of my Raymarine ST7000 AP?
3. Does PyPilot support the clutch of my linear drive (type 2)?

Re: PyPilot

It may be best to continue the discussion on the pypilot forums:

OpenMarine - Pypilot

Yes for all.

Contact me with email if you want to order a high power controller.

It accepts nmea0183 and signalk for control. Not sure what the MFD you have uses.

It is already possible to control from a phone using the web browser control interface, or running opencpn android.

Re: PyPilot

Pypilot has been updated to 0.8.1beta for Windows Opencpn v4.2.0-v4.8.8 and Sean has included Tacking now. Please report tests of this plugin if you have the full setup required.

Re: PyPilot

Sean Pypilot ov50 is now working.

I was wondering how much power would be needed to run my st4000 raymarine wheelpilot with pypilot on our bristol? Just an average needed. It balances well and will sail for quite awhile upwind without trimming.

I saw this post and one below with an remarkable estimate of use for an autopilot, its a bosch wiper motor 24v used at 12v.

Darn thats the jpeg! Not the link....yes it is the link, you can click on it.

Here look at this screen shot from CPT.com
It says average current draw is .4 amps
Well .4 amps times 24 hours is 9.6 AH?
Less than 11, the CPT is extremely miserly in power consumption

Is the CPT more miserly than ST4000?

Re: PyPilot

I know this thread is about PyPilot but I wanted to inform/connect you all. The Ardupilot community has started tackling autonomous sailing in a meaningful way starting in late 2018. They also have a Google Summer of Code project initiated. Perhaps there is potential for collaboration or synergy.

I doubt it and if it is, itís not likely by much.
In fact Iíd bet CPT May use more power, reason is itís way more powerful a motor, so if that power is used, surely itís consuming more than a less powerful motor.

A wheel pilot is more miserly simply because itís taking a rotary motion from an electric motor and using it directly, way less loss that way.
