Re: Servo demo problems

@jdolecki

Sounds like your not picking up the aiy software.
Two things come to mind
1. Have you put your demo.test file in the /home/pi/AIY-voice-kit-python/src folder? - If not do so
2. Are you running the software by clicking on Start dev terminal and then typing src/servo_demo.py? if not do so

I enjoy messing around with mine - it controls my TV, soundbar, room lights (and xmas tree lights), Tivo and Kodi boxes to a degree. I also interface it with something called Home Assistant (HA) which is a great Home Automation facility - I've built some arduino based sensors that feed in to HA and ...

Why don't you email  Billy Rutledge who is the Director of AIY Projects at Google at the following email address and tell him how you disappointed you are? The email address is support-aiyprojects@google.com

Hi, I wonder if your expecting the wrong result from the demo - the way the cloudspeech demo works is that 1. You invoke the the script 2. You press the button 3. You say something 4. If it understands what you said it does it - for instance invokes a script 5. The while loop has been satisfied so i...

May be worth un commenting some of the lines in the /boot/config.txt specifically

# dtoverlay=googlevisionbonnet-myriad
# dtoverlay=aiy-io
# dtoverlay=aiy-leds
# dtoverlay=dwc2

Cheers - they have responded to the issue and they say it is intentional that the voicekit software is in the aiyprojects branch. The aiyprojects branch will cover all aiy products
Seems to me that the voicekit branch is heading for depreciation - I have asked whether that will happen

It is very confusing. The "communication" materials tend to be faulty.

The kit consisted of a "hat", butto...
