constructing my 1st BrickPi3 device according to these instructions:
and finally got the BalanceBot.py running on the device (code equal to https://github.com/DexterInd/BrickPi3/tree/master/Projects/BalanceBot/ )
pi@dex:~ $ sudo python /home/pi/Dexter/BrickPi3/Projects/BalanceBot/BalanceBot.py BrickPi3 BalanceBot. Configuring Infrared Receiver... Lay robot down so that it is perfectly still, then press Red Up on the remote. Configuring Gyro Sensor... Keep robot still. Stand robot up, then press Blue Up on the remote. Release Blue Up on the remote. Balancing, so let go of the robot. Use Red and Blue Up and Down to drive the robot. Oh no! Robot fell. Exiting. pi@dex:~ $
After pressing the Blue Up on the remote it just accelerates 2sec backward (or forward) and is not (even try) able to get in balance - no matter what I try.
I’ve run various tests and Python scripts from /home/pi/Dexter/BrickPi3/Software/Python/Examples/ and all sensors and motors “seems” running ok.
Also tried to swap Left<–>Right motor cables but no help.
The gyro is EV3 gyro sensor.
