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 ...
