What is the proper way to shut down an OpenROV?


#1

Thank you for your help.

I do have one more question: At the local Maker Lab Pi day celebration yesterday I was showing off my (nonfunctional, yet still cool) ROV and one of the people said it may be the way I shut it down, that micro controllers are sensitive about that. So the question is, what is the proper way to shut down the ROV?

Thanks again!

The ROV was designed so that you just pull the power and your done. Unfortunately, I believe our software image in the 2.5.1 version was not tuned properly to survive abrupt shutoffs and that is resulting in a number of folks having to re-image… we have code that is entering BETA that hopefully makes the image more tolerant or abrupt power loss.

In the meantime, you can ssh in to the ROV and issue sudo halt which will gracefully shutdown the ROV.
