Project using Arduino to steer a full-size boat on a compass heading.
Project in progress by autohelm
My boat is a medium size yacht, sailing in open water, where there are waves and eddy currents throwing the boat constantly off course.
It is unusual to not have to correct the course every minute.
Modern commercial Tiller Pilots have AI learning, how the waves knock the boat off course and try to anticipate the waves.
The Arduino connects to the existing Tiller Pilot electric motor, switches and LEDS.
The little motor simulates the existing Tiller Pilot electric motor.
