New to BrickPi


#1

I am new to BrickPi, I set up my Pi as per the instructions but I can’t determine if the BrickPi module is working or not.
I have been able to turn on and off LED 1 and 2, but I can’t seem to get any of my NXT sensors (currently just trying the Touch Sensors - thought that would be easy) to work using the various example programs. Is there something that I am missing here?

streckerja, welcome to the BrickPi! Are you getting any errors when you run an example program? Have you, for example, tried a motor example? I recommend trying a motor example in python first, verifying that that works. Be sure to power the BrickPi with the BrickPi Power Pack when you do this.

If you’re trying the touch sensor, have you verified the sensor is on the right port?
