Re: Checking the battery status

With ABB_demo I can see the battery status. But still rmp_demo shows bad values. Massage 4 of the packet 0x407 is still off.

I think ABB_demo and rmp_demo connect to different devices.

Re: Checking the battery status

No I don't see "Segway RMP Auxiliary Battery Board" in the device manager. I only have Segway Mobile Platform in USB controllers and Segway Centralized RMP Controller in other devices (for which it cannot find any drivers).

Re: Checking the battery status

I just changed the batteries to see if I will have the same behavior. First I updated the platform using a windows 7 computer. Before windows 7 was not supported, but in the documents included with the latest update package it mentions Windows 7. So I installed the latest drivers to the machine. In ...

Re: Checking the battery status

Hi Patrick, I applied the recent update to my platform. However the value of the Aux battery Voltage is quite off. After a full charge the last 2 bytes of the message 8 is 0xb908 which is roughly 44000 (it should be 0-255 if I understood correctly). Aux battery status also reports a different value:...

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Hi Patrick,

I look forward to get the new firmware. Will it be available at the forum, or is there an other address that I should go?

Yes I might be interested in upgrading the platform. I would be happy if Chris can give me the details.

Best

Re: Checking the battery status

Is the package 0x0407 for powerbase battery or auxiliary battery? In any case I need to know the status of both batteries.

Checking the battery status

Hi,

I have an RMP 50XL with 2 battery packs and I would like to check the powerbase and UI batteries' status during operation.

The CAN packages 0x0406 contains the voltages of these two batteries, but I prefer to know as percentages.

Could you tell me how I can get/calculate thes values?

Thanks

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Hi Patrick, When I run the platform at 0.5m/s for 2.05m the odometry reported me 1.017m displacement. The behavior is very same as if I hadn't updated the firmware. When I update the firmware I follow these update instructions: 1- Update User Interface firmware -- load .bin file 2- Update POwerbase ...

Hi Patrick,

Sorry for the late reply.

I just changed the batteries and the build ID is: 0x0BEA

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Ok I run the demo program and did what you said. After one complete wheel turn, the values are following:

Int left: 24636
Int Right: 24886
Fore/Aft Dist: 24620
Int Yaw Pos: 0.694

I also attached the screenshot.

I guess at this point I should contact Chris and send you the machine....

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Thank you for the answer Patrick. Sorry the demo code conversion was wrong. There was a an unused #define in the code that gave the conversion from counts to ft and I mistakenly used that. I updated the conversion factor and ran your same test (commanding 1 wheel revolution (1.45229m) and verifying ...

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Following up my previous post. About the odometry: I made the platform go forward one wheel turn. The number of counts that it ran are: Left: 23880 and Right: 24632. The platform moved 1.46m, which makes 16356.16 counts/m The Documentation says that it should be 33216 cnts/m The latest demo code say...

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Hi Patrick, I checked the code. The conversion value for the integrated forward position in the code (3085.92counts/m) does not match to the documentation (33216 counts/m); and neither of them matches to the reality which is ~15000. For the Integrated Turn Position the code and the docs have the sam...

I don't have the KVASER USB-CAN, but I can check out the demo source code and extract the correct information for my code.

For the CAN ID I dumped directly the message coming from the serial port without processing it further for the I...

Hi Patrick, I logged the raw usb packets (18byte) with robot moving 2meters, stop, and turning 180 degrees. The !!!packet ones are the integrated forward and yaw positions with ID 0x0404. I hope that was what you were asking. Thanks Akin packet: 0xF0 0x55 0xAA 0x0E 0x80 0x40 0x80 0x00 0x08 0x00 0x00...

Re: Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

After verifying all the headers, values and conversion units with the correct document I still have "integrated for/aft position" reporting x0.5 of the real value and "integrated yaw position" reporting x0.52 of the real value*. I know that the odometry should be calibrated, but I'm surprised that i...

Segway 50XL Aux Power LED

Hi,

I use the auxilliary 12V to power up a contact closure circuit and a hokuyo laser. When I turn on the aux power, the indicator LED turns red and always stays red. I wonder if the light is always red, or there is a problem somewhere and does not turn to green.

Thanks

Segway RMP 50XL Odometry value problem

Hi, I recently got a Segway RMP 50XL platform. I used the rmi_demo_usb demo software to check the odometry values of the platform and I see that the numbers are way off. The "fore/aft distance traveled" and "Int. yaw position" values given by the platform are quite wrong. For a displacement of 0.67m...
