Turtlebot NUC battery state

Hi community,

I'd like to use the turtlebot with a more powerful NUCi5 instead of a poor netbook. The NUC has no /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1

Is it possible to replace it with simply setting: export TURTLEBOT_BATTERY=/var/tmp/battery/BAT1

and write my own file for battery simulation/fake ? Later I'd like to fill-up the content with real data from an attached external USB-ADC-Modul.

Which parameters/values are neccessary to make default turtlebot happy with the fake-setup ?

Any suggestions ?

Thanks for some feedback

Cheers Christian

If you'd like to setup a way to generate a battery status that would be interesting. Note that we've recently added support to disable the battery monitoring too:
