Hi, we got our Zumi on Monday and put it together! At the end, the only thing missing was one side of the velcro. My only feedback on the build is that it feels fragile (the internals and the shell).
The front and the back IR sensors don’t seem to work well. When I run the notebook the readings seems to be random numbers between 11 and 15. I mean by random, that as I move an object on the front of the sensor the number changes but not consistently with the distance.
However, it does seem to work consistently with the bottom sensors (readings were going from 10 to 80 as i lifted Zumi).
The Jupiter notebooks are most of the time very slow. Could I ssh to the RPi to run python commands easier for troubleshooting? (I tried the default pi:raspberry but it didn’t work).
Another feedback is that it would be nice to have reset ( ideally a hardware button) to kill all user processes and put Zumi into default state (motor stopped, lights off, etc. ) without a notebook. Couple of times functionality stuck (motor, lights, screen) and I had to power off (not ideal as the sd card can corrupt) or get to a notebook and re-initialise ( it can take some time).
Anyway, Zumi is really cool and so much to learn! We will have lots of fun!
