I am trying to build a remotely operated odrive application which I was hoping to use only the ASCII protocol serial comms to perform all the tasks I need. I would like to be able to do these things over the serial ASCII
-perform a motor calibration
-enter closed loop control
-enter idle state
My current prototype uses a combination of odrivetool and ASCII protocol all called from within the same python program, it works great but I would like to do everything over a wireless serial connection.
I have tried:
ser.write(b’w odrv0.axis0.requested_state 8’)
ser.write(b’w odrv0.axis0.requested_state 1’)
but it doesn’t do anything. In the documentation it says most settings are available through ascii if they have a numerical argument, but I am having no luck with this.
Could I do this another way? Do I have to put something with a python interpreter next to the odrive to run odrivetool on my remote machine?
Here are the notes on axis states
First post, Thanks!
