Powering down ROV


#1

This is likely a very silly question, but what is the appropriate way to power down/disconnect from the ROV?

Thanks,
Charlie

Not so silly as it seems. For any OpenROV unit 2.5 you simply unplug the the USB power from the topside adapter. For units prior to that you have to disconnect the batteries.

Disclaimer: There is an active forum discussion tracking a potential issue on BeagleBone Blacks related to them malfunctioning that might be related to sudden power offs, that also links to recommendations to ssh in to the BeagleBone and issue a halt command to shut down the BeagleBone before removing power.
