I just wanted to post my recent experiences with version 1.4 of the firmware for the GoPiGo.
When everything is all setup and I turn it on (using the “Dexter-Pi” image), the left wheel just keeps spinning forward. This happens whether or not the Pi is connected to the GoPiGo. The only easy way I can stop it, is by getting to a shell, running the
basic_test_all.py script, and issuing the
Interestingly enough, when issuing some of the other commands, the following behavior is seen:
w: both wheels forward
a: right wheel forward
d: left wheel forward
s: right wheel backward
i: both wheels forward
k: right wheel backward
As these issues do not manifest themselves in version 1.3, I have downgraded for the time being.
Not a big deal, I just wanted to report it so that my nice little GoPiGo continues to receive the new updates and everything keeps operating smoothly.
