Re: Meped software

Hi Antonio, Thank you for your question. The meped_testservorange program you mentioned wasn't written by us but rather, another mePed owner. I downloaded a copy of the program tonight and was able to download it to one of our mePeds without any errors so I'm not quite sure what is causing the issue...

Re: MOSFET used in mePed

Hi Yosauron,

We don't use any MOSFETs on the mePed PCB. The large TO-220 package you're probably thinking of is a 3.3v Regulator. All 8 servos are powered directly from the battery pack.

Thanks,
Scott Pierce

Re: Raspberry Pi / Python

Hi smcculley,

Unfortunately I haven't seen any Raspberry Pi ports of the mePed code yet and a quick Google search didn't reveal anything either.

Thanks,

Re: Servo problem

Hi cbosso,

I apologize for the delayed response and the issue you're having with the servo! Please email your address to scott@spierce.com and I will ship out a new servo. It sounds like the potentiometer in that one servo is faulty.

Thanks,
Scott Pierce

Re: Servo stuck in one position

Hi Hanail, I apologize for the delayed response and the issue you're having with one of your servos. Just to clarify, when centering the servo, since the servo isn't plugged in, there should not be a humming noise when trying to rotate the servo to the centered position. If it is plugged into the me...

Re: servo malfunctioning

Hi Barney, I'm glad you were able to make some progress with your mePed! It sounds like for your first issue of the robot tetering on two legs, you'll need to adjust two of your Leg Servo Arms. Referencing page 4, step 9 of the mePed Assembly Manual and this picture: mePed Leg Position.jpg If you lo...

Re: servo malfunctioning

Hello, I apologize for your troubles. Would you mind plugging the two faulty servos into a different (known working) servo port on the mePed PCB to verify that you get the same results? I’d like to rule out the possibility of the servo port on the PCB being faulty as opposed to the servos themselves...

Re: Please disregard (sorta) website issue mail

Hi Andy, Thank you for your feedback, I apologize for your troubles downloading the code. I hadn't tested it in IE/Edge so I wasn't aware of the problem. I think the best solution will be for me to put the Arduino Sketch in a Zip file so that web browsers don't try to open the .ino as a plain text f...

Re: Summary of Suggested Troubleshooting Tips

Hi RockyMtnMark, Thank you for the great recap of common issues, and your additional insight, that people face when getting their mePed working for the first time. I couldn't have said it better myself! I should update the user manual to instruct users to plug in all the servos into the mePed PCB an...
