Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code and links to BBC and FT)

rover was on manual control for the video. wifi was too congested to run the AI reliably. I was able to run it with the AI when fewer people were around at the start/end of the event.

Re: Just like the real Spirit Rover.

Most likely you shorted something on the Pi. You can very easily do this if you did not place plastic washers under the raguidno or between the camera and the metal bracket. if all else is good then it doesn't make sense. Is the arduino working fine on its own? The rover is able to run its demo code...

Re: Large off-center points with pan-tilt snagging cables

Best solution I could come up with to minimise ribbon movement is as follows (for all wires): Pan wire between left wing and body just behind the front suporting bracket. Not overlapping any other cables. Rangefirnder wire between left wing and body near the middle (where the buzzer is located) not ...

Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code!!)

There is a fix for that. Have a look in the previous page or in a separate thread related to Pi3 and pixel. I have not tested it myself but it might help you.

Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code!!)

did you also install the software for the pixels as mentioned in the guide? without it, you cannot communicate with the pixels daemon and it seems you are missing that daemon.

Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code!!)

chirp does not exist in python yet. from arduino you can handle the pixels without affecting the pi.

Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code!!)

:D :D :D yes i have the same problem with manual control but that is inherent to the way i chose to implement it. The alternative would be to use some kind of game controller on usb. I don't have one so it isn't an option for me. about the motors not running at the same speed, just go in the code an...

Re: Cloud robotics demo code (now with actual code!!)

very nice. Thanks.
Does the manual control work fine for you?
