Re: Advice on Quad-Steer Robot Development

Interesting. So if I was interested in pursuing the version I have above. (Using the hub motors) What software would I use to write the code that receives the joystick information and runs the controllers? What language would be used to code this?

Advice on Quad-Steer Robot Development

Hi all. I've had this idea for a while. I want to mount 4 hub motor skateboard wheels to a platform. Each will be mounted so they can spin 360 degrees.

No internal cpu temp or voltage sensor on Pi 4?

Is there really no cpu temp sensor on the pi 4? And no power voltage sensor? Can anyone recommend solutions? Looking to connect the sensors to the pi so it can be monitored remotely.

Re: Connecting Pi 4 to Verizon Data

So if I buy one of these: https://www.verizonwireless.com/interne ... dem-u620l/

Could I get it to work on the pi? It says windows and mac operating systems. Would be sweet to get it to use wifi and this data, whichever is stronger.

Connecting Pi 4 to Verizon Data

Hello, I'm trying to make a video streaming wearable camera using a pi 4. I have it working using local wifi I'm just curious - could this work using cellular data? Would be great to have some range when videoing. Thanks in advance.

This is the boot file I have and the .conf file. When I run this on the pi zero W the green light blinks 2 or 3 times and stops. The first time I ran it the light blinked for a minute or so... but still not able to connect via PuTTY.
