Re: VL53L0X stand-alone and forcing drivers

I have tested my VL53L0X with the 3.3V from an Arduino and it does work. Whenever I try to use it with the Crazyflie and Z-ranger driver it doesn't seem to work. I've double checked my pin connections, and made sure everything is up to date and flashed. When connecting with the client, it shows the ...

VL53L0X stand-alone and forcing drivers

Along the same vein as this topic https://forum.bitcraze.io/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2410 , I'm wondering if using just the raw sensor from here should still be able to function with the existing Z-ranger code. If so, it seems to me the only relevant pins I'd need to connect to the Crazyflie are Vin, GND...

Re: Crazyflie Client won't open

I wasn't aware that pip had different versions like python. That does make sense though, since pip usually seems to come along with python installations. Using pip3 did get it to work after running it with the github pull and installation. Thanks for the help!

Re: Crazyflie Client won't open

Thanks for the quick response. I have done as you suggested with pip, but it wouldn't install anything, so I added the --upgrade flag to it. It said that it worked and told me cflib was up to date after subsequent upgrade attempts. I still get the same error code as above though and the client won't...

Crazyflie Client won't open

I can't get the Crazyflie client to open up at all. It's the same issue as https://forum.bitcraze.io/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2352 . I have installed Pyqt5 as per the solution there, but now I'm getting the following error when trying to run it. Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3.4...

Z-ranger IO pin

Hello, I've been looking into the new Z-ranger a little bit and notice on the wiki that it uses the i2c pins as well as one of the GPIO. I have attempted looking through "vl53l0x.c" to figure what the IO pin is being used for. I did not see anything, but I could easily have missed something. I'm hop...

Re: Error when running "ramp.py" in virtual machine setup

So I think I know what the problem was. One of those tiny issues I shouldn't have missed but definitely did. I'm fairly certain I was just neglecting the 3 at the end of python, so it wasn't using the correct version of python. I feel like I've wasted quite a bit of both of our time, but I appreciat...

Re: Blinking an external LED

Thanks so much for your help! Now the plan is to implement some functionality with external motors. I'm sure I'll have another post up when I run into complications there and have more questions. :lol:

Re: Blinking an external LED

That's exactly what I was looking for, thanks! I got it to work how I wanted. I just want to check my understanding of this code before calling this solved. I did have a couple of questions regarding the "xTaskCreate" function though: 1) What does it do beyond just a normal function declaration? I a...

Blinking an external LED

I'm trying to implement external functionality, starting with something as simple as flashing an LED on and off repeatedly. I'm at the point where I can setup a file that will turn on an LED from one of the GPIO ports. I've even been able to use parameters associated with the LED to turn it on and o...
