I have built Bittle and am trying test it and get the software running. Bittle does not sit nor stand. Stays very close to calibration position.
Installed Arduino IDE 1.8.13 on Ubuntu. Initial install on this host.
Adafruit PWM Servo Driver V 2.4.0
IRremote V 2.6.1
QList V 0.6.7
AdaFruit NeoPixel V 1.7.0
Commented out the unused decoders in IRremote.h by setting values to 0.
Went to https://github.com/jrowberg/i2cdevlib
Downloaded ZIP file and unzipped it in ~/Downloads.
Used 'Add .ZIP Library' to find Arduino/MPU6050/ and Arduino/I2Cdev/ and added them.
Download a fresh OpenCat repository from GitHub (Sunday, Feb 21, 2021 11 PM PST) https://github.com/PetoiCamp/OpenCat.
Verified the following in OpenCat.h
· #define NyBoard_V1_0
No socks on Bittle
Turn Bittle battery on (Battery is fully charged)
Connect Bittle to Ubuntu via USB.
In Arduino, Tools Menu:
Board: "Arduino Uno"
Programmer: "Arduino as ISP"
testInfraredRemote - Works
testBuzzer - Works
testSevenRgbLED - Works
Calibrated all servos and saved the values to EEPROM.
“c” makes the robot stand on elbows and knees.
“kbalance” does NOT make it stand on feet. Instead, the 4 yellow arms and legs rotate forward about 15 degrees.
* Start * Initialize I2C Connect MPU6050 Test connection MPU successful Initialize DMP 1098 121 3 -8 Enable DMP Enable interrupt DMP ready!
"ksit" does NOT make it sit. The new position is very similar to calibrate position.
Using the remote results in only twitching and little in the way of position changes. The behavior is very similar to that shown by Austin in this video.
Please advise as I can't figure out what I missed. Thanks in advance.
That's probably because you didn't set the serial monitor as "no line ending".
Rongzhong, thanks for your quick response. I have NOT entered "y" after uploading WriteInstinct.ino because I am NOT prompted to overwrite the skills.
Here's what I see in the Serial Monitor:
So, I am confused.
(1) I get no prompt for Instincts.
(2) The "Saving skill info...." message implies that the Instincts were saved to EEPROM.
(3) Are Instincts the same as Skills?
Thank you in advance.
The skills are not written correctly to the memory. Have you entered "y" after uploading WriteInstinct.ino when prompted whether to overwrite the skills?
