Before you can configure the IndoorNav backpack, you must contact Clearpath Robotics' customer support and ask to be sent an archive containing additional files needed. You will need to copy this archive onto the backpack PC as noted below.
Your IndoorNav backpack PC comes with the latest supported version of IndoorNav pre-installed. If you need to update or reinstall the software on the backpack PC, first update the OS using the procedure outlined here: https://docs.ottomotors.com/en/51722-52149-updating-individual-robots.html.
Once the OS has been updated you will need to connect a monitor, keyboard, and wired internet connection to backpack PC. Power-on the PC and log in using the backpack's default username and password.
After logging in you may now copy the
.tar.gz file supplied by
Clearpath Robotics onto the backpack. Make a note of the path to this
file, as you will need it in the following steps.
Run the following commands to establish a wired internet connection:
sudo ip link delete sbr0 type bridge
sudo dhclient eno1
You may need to replace
eno1 with a different interface ID, depending
on the physical ethernet port you have connected to your router. Other
common examples are
eth0. Running the
command will show all available network interfaces.
Run the following commands to download the setup script to complete the rest of the backpack software installation:
git clone https://github.com/clearpathrobotics/cpr-indoornav-install.git
install.sh script is interactive and will prompt you for the
following pieces of information (not necessarily in this order):
- a new hostname for the backpack PC
- the hostname of your robot's primary PC
- the path to the
.tar.gzfile you copied onto the backpack earlier
You must power-cycle the backpack PC after running
install.sh to finalize the configuration.
