Issue Connecting to NVIDIA Jetson TX2


#1

I recently got the new 3.5 48v ODrive and got it to connect (via odrivetool) to my mac but can’t get it to connect to my Jetson TX2 (it is an ARM based Ubuntu computer).

I have a feeling it might be something simple but here is what it shows when I run the program:

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~/.local/bin$ ./odrivetool
ODrive control utility v0.4.2
Please connect your ODrive.
You can also type help() or quit().
In [1]:

I tried typing help and get this:

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~/.local/bin$ ./odrivetool
ODrive control utility v0.4.2
Please connect your ODrive.
You can also type help() or quit().

In [1]: help
Out[1]: <function fibre.shell.launch_shell..()>
In [2]:

Not sure if that info is helpful. I have installed the latest devel firmware on the ODrive and that didn’t chance anything.

When I do lsusb this is what I get

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~/.local/bin$ lsusb

nvidia@tegra-ubuntu:~/.local/bin$

Any ideas as what to try next?

I got it work, not sure what happened, I think I might not have flashed the correct firmware, but I went back and reflashed it with the devel and it works now.
