OTTO PLUS assistance

by mnrk

I have wired and verified all the extras are working (LED Matrix, touch sensor(single one connected to D6), MAX4466 mic). I don't have the bluetooth or the RGB led connected.
I commented out the RGB code in the OTTO Plus v3 code on github. I also disconnected the servos so it wouldn't move around on me while I test it out.
Things seem to be working, but the code seems to hang up after the code is running for a very short while. I know this because the ledmatrix gets stuck at on a mouth display and the touch sensor isn't able to change the mode.
Has anyone experienced this? Where or what should I be looking into to resolve the issue.
At one point, I modified the v3 code so the interrupt was not in the code and I was able to cycle through the modes by touching the touch sensor, but it seems others have theirs working and I shouldn't need to hack the code so much to get it to work.

Not responding to Bluetooth commands

by ChrilleSjosten

I have not had any luck to get my HC-06 module to work with my Otto DIY+. I have hooked everything up like the guide says, configured the module to the recommended settings using the Arduino and then I used the OttoDIYAPP_122_baudrate9600.ino to program my Otto. I have also succesfully installed the included OttoDIYAPP.apk on my Android device. I can connect to the HC-06 module without a problem, and when I connect using the app the module stops blinking. But when I try to send commands to the Arduino nothing happends. I have done a succesfull loopback test on my HC-06 module and it seems to be working correctly. Can anyone help me?
