chip updates: some fun with CMA [updates]
So today, we stepped outside to the new patio setup. Thanks to the new family space I have a place to keep things when I'm working outside.
So we tried to get chip to standup/sitdown on the patio, the same thing we did last time, only this time when he tries to stand he over-currents and shuts off. I have no idea what changed since last time but I have a guess that one of the motors, the back-left knee joint is sticky and unhappy so we're going to need to take a look at that or just let it cool off for a bit. Let's try letting it cool off, usually when this problem happens, letting the robot sit for a bit helps stop the problem. I don't think it's a mechanical issue, if the motor isn't okay by tomorrow we'll take apart the robot but for now, we didn't damage anything so I'm going to assume over-heating is the issue and we'll leave the motor alone for now.
In the meantime, I can just look at the lovely setup we created.
