Bluetooth not working on PI3

Posted 16:17:02, 22nd May 2018   |   № 112

Hi,

I am using the marty PI image and have had him following a ball.

thought I would write a python script using a wii mote to control him.

Noticed the blue tooth interface is disabled.

Anyone else had this problem and if so how did you fix it?

I have not investigated any further myself, yet!

thanks

Steve

Link to new PI image does not work

Posted 18:51:26, 16th April 2018   |   № 106

Hi Guys,

Decided to flash a new raspberry PI image down the hackspace tonight to sort out connecting a PI 3 to the internet as well as the hotspot Marty Uses.

Noticed you have up loaded a new image today, the link from the "Adding a PI to Marty does not work".

It takes you through to a listing of a folder contents and then eventually an error message as shown below.

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. A…

how to connect Marty with PI3 to hotspot and home network

Posted 18:08:44, 27th March 2018   |   № 104

Hi, If I understand a reply to a post correctly, with a PI3 you manage to create the wifi hotspot Marty and connect to another wifi network.

I have just dismantled Marty and fitted a wifi dongle to my PI3, re-assembled and then powered up.

The hotspot has not been created, possibly due to the dongle? So I am now about to switch Marty off, dismantle and remove the dongle.

Having done that and re-powered Marty the hotspot is created and I can VNC into Marty.

looking at etc/network/interfaces I be…

Does Camera Mount need modifying

Posted 12:36:17, 14th March 2018   |   № 103

I have printed the camera mount and fitted a raspberry PI with camera.

I get an image but the bottom quarter of the image is the bottom of the hexagon mouth.

Just wondering whether anyone else has had this issue and how they fixed it?

I notice on the ball following tutorial , the image on page 6 shows a very small amount of the mouth, mine is alot more than that.

Progress with rospy but cant get sidestep to work

Posted 13:14:04, 12th March 2018   |   № 101

Modified the initial walking example to check out some of the other commands hello, walk and lean work

Cant get side step to work.

I have included a snippet from the code below:

def sidestep_command (side=0, steps = 1, move_time = 2000, step_length = 50): ''' < little endian B 15 …

Can't seem to enable servos using ROS

Posted 19:50:22, 28th February 2018   |   № 98

On the plus side: fitted a PI3 and camera to Marty used your latest raspberry PI image can connect to the marty wifi

Started to follow the"Advanced Marty Raspberry PI Camera and ball following"

everything appeared to work, I could connect to the Marty hotspot and VNC into the PI, see battery voltage, camera output, calibrate the camera to detect a ball.

I typed in the python code under the heading "Actually do something" and Marty did not move.

The confusing thing is that the command …

Problems since pressing "bob the button"

Posted 17:52:43, 20th August 2017   |   № 22

So, built Marty, connected to my home wifi network and had some fun controlling Marty using scratch.

Now, I want to take it out and demonstrate it so I pressed bob the button to start the sequence again and connect to my phone as a mobile hot spot.

Nothing has worked since.

I connected Marty to my phone along with my laptop and confirmed both were connected. Then loaded scratchx but Marty was not detected.

So I pressed bob the button again and connected to my home network, went through the calib…
