is it possible to connect your grove servo to the grovepi?
Hey rob, when we tried it on earlier versions it doesn’t work very well. The Servo draws a lot of power and cuasese the GrovePi to reset the Raspberry Pi and an unexpected restart.
Thanks. I have the gopigo board but it only has a 4 connectors and one servo - it might work for what I’m trying but would like more connections and also be able to run servo and the motors. 2 questions
- is there a wall power adapter for the gopigo board - the battery works but for my project I don’t need mobility
- can I join/stack the gopigo and grovepi boards onto a single raspberryPI 2?
1). Yes, there’s a wall power source for this: http://www.dexterindustries.com/shop/raspberry-pi-power-supply/ But you should NOT run the motors without batteries in place.
2). There’s not a great way to do this. You can pin them though with some jumper wires.
1) is there a wall power adapter for the gopigo board – the battery works but for my project I don’t need mobilityYou should be able to use any power supply which is rated for 9V to 12V at 2A to use with the GoPiGo.
2) can I join/stack the gopigo and grovepi boards onto a single raspberryPI 2?You should be able to connect the GrovePi to the GoPiGo. You can just connect a Grove cable b/w the I2C port on the GrovePi and the I2C port on the GoPiGo and it should work.
I’ve already asked in other thread (http://www.dexterindustries.com/topic/raspberry-pi-python-and-servo/#post-95472), but I need your help/advice in order to manage GrovePi + servos using RPI and programming with Python… if it is possible…
Any advice will be welcome!
I have answered the other post, so do let us know if that helps you.
