Running Gopigo from batteries


#1

Hello,

When I connect the batteries to the raspberry pi to have the robot move in the room, it goes off and I cannot make it start again. However if I use my cellphone battery charger to power up to Raspberry Pi it works well.

Any ideas of what could be happening here?

Thanks in advance

Hi,
What batteries are you using and is the voltage above 9V.

Yes the voltage is 10.5V and I’m using alkaline batteries as well as rechargeable Ni-MH batteries and it does the same thing. While the Pi is sending commands to the robot to move I see in the screen the following message: IOError and after a little bit it goes off; after that it tries to boot up again but it cannot get past the 4 color screen shown at the beginnig when booting up.
