Day 62 – Power Problems (We Think)

Referring to the events of Day Sixty-One (Boot Loop), Aaron and I believe we may have solved the problem. The BreezeLite was possibly not booting due to power stability issues.

At home, I was running the BreezeLite off a power board which was plugged into another power board. Now, before you complain about safety issues, the second power board only runs a clock and a couple of desk lamps. The BreezeLite was obviously more sensitive to power fluctuations.

Back at school, we plugged the BreezeLite into a power board plugged directly into the wall and it booted without any trouble for 15 trials.


If it really was the power that caused the boot issues (and if it’s not, we don’t know what is), we’ll have to be careful what power source we use for the robot.
