Last week, I bought BrickPi+BaseKit from RobotShop JP.
I followed the tutorial given at “www.dexterindustries.com/brickpi-tutorials-documentation/”.
I tested BrickPi+ with Raspberry Pi 3 B, 2016.10.14_Dexter_Industries_jessie (latest version), and EV3 motors and sensors. These motors and sensor are working well with EV3 Brick.
Everything went well (VNC worked, Remote Terminal worked) until I tested motors and sensors with BrickPi+.
When I run “sudo python /home/pi/Desktop/BrickPi_Python/Sensor_Examples/BrickPi_Hardware_Test.py” as suggested by “www.dexterindustries.com/BrickPi/getting-started/8-troubleshooting-common-problems-brickpi”, the motor rotates even I don’t press the touch sensor.
After that, I run “sudo python /home/pi/Desktop/BrickPi_Python/Sensor_Examples/EV3-Touch.py”, the results are always > 1000. This means that the BrickPi+ always detects that the touch sensors pressed even thought I don’t pressed the touch sensor.
(In these two cases above, I attached EV3 Touch Sensor to S2 of BrickPi+)
Then, I attached EV3 Color sensor to S4 and ran “sudo python /home/pi/Desktop/BrickPi_Python/Sensor_Examples/EV3-ColorSensor.py”. However, there was not light appearing from the Color sensor (as when I use the Color sensor with the EV3 Brick) and the results returned by BrickPi+ were not correct (as I used different color objects).
(All the cases above were tested with 8 AA batteries, when I run “sudo python /home/pi/Desktop/BrickPi_Python/Sensor_Examples/BrickPi+_Read_Battery_Voltage.py”, it returns 10.5444).
Could you please help me solve these problems? Without the ability to get correct values from sensors, BrickPi+ becomes useless.
Is it possible that BrickPi+ hardware has problems? In this case, what should I do?
