Re: Checking the battery status

Hi Akin,

It looks like the aux battery CAN communication has not been started. Can you verify that the auxiliary battery is powered on? The light next to the toggle switch should be on when the aux battery communication board is powered and the battery is healthy.

Re: Discrepancy between commanded and actual turn rate

We have completed the testing and verified that there is infact no bug. I can reproduce what you are experiencing by incorrectly setting the yaw accleration rate in the configurable parameters. By default the yaw acceleration limit is 1 rad/s^2. This means that a command of 1 rad/s will take 1 secon...

Re: Discrepancy between commanded and actual turn rate

I think the issue they are experiencing is that the physical orientation of the platform in pure yaw motion for a period of time does not match the integrated yaw rate command over the same period of time. Which would imply that something is going on physically with the machine (ie increased roller ...

The build information on the machine is the latest release after you removed the battery and experienced the issue; indicating there no effect on the firmware due to removing the battery. We will try and replicate it at Segway to see if it is reproducible.
