I’ve finally had a chance to try to sink my teeth into a BrickPi project but I’m running into some major issues.
I’m using the latest Dexter Industries raspbian image (2014.01.20_Dexter_Industries_wheezy.rar) and updated it with the latest raspbian packages.
I’ve installed all the software following the instructions at http://www.dexterindustries.com/BrickPi/program-it/python/ (specifically the
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools sudo python setup.py install
and I’ve pulled the very latest code from Github…
but when I try to run https://github.com/DexterInd/BrickPi_Python/blob/master/Sensor_Examples/LEGO-Motor_Test.py I have two motors going forward successfully, but as soon as they are supposed to reverse direction, my Pi reboots…
What can I do to get this working ? What are the standard debugging steps in this kind of situation ?
