2012-07-30 11:32:20 -0600 asked a question Turtlebot- Random Wandering with Collision Avoidance

Alright, I am a bit of a newbie to all of this so I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. What I am trying to accomplish is to write a simple program in which the Turtlebot autonomously "wanders" around. Essentially this would consist of the Turtlebot continuously moving forward until a bump was detected, at which point it would rotate until the bump was no longer detected and move forward again.

My though is to mirror the methods used in the turtlebot_teleop and turtlebot_follower programs to send the desired velocities, but I am not sure how to integrate bump detection into this. Any pointers on how to do this?

2012-06-21 08:57:28 -0600 asked a question Bad Gyro Callibration

I am receiving the following error while running the Turtlebot dashboard:

Level: Error Message: Bad Gyro Calibration Offset: The gyro average is outside the standard deviation.

Gyro Enabled: True Raw Gyro Rate: 311 Calibration Offset: 311 Calibration Buffer: [311, 310, 310, ..., 310] (Values range from 310-311.)

I saw the other two questions regarding this and tried the solutions suggested to no avail. I have cycled the power, unplugged and replugged the power board several times and nothing has worked. I am also receiving this error with two different Turtlebots. Both are assembled using kits from Clearpath Robotics.

Possible solutions?
