Autonomous Galileo

Hi,

I think Intel Galileo power requirements have prevented implementation of many autonomous devices such as robot cars, but maybe I'm missing something.

Do you know any project/s (preferably released in 2015-2016) with Intel Galileo powered from batteries?

Thank you in advance,

Fernando.

Hi FGT,

 

 

As you already saw, there are several threads about this topic. In general, powering the Galileo with a battery is not recommended unless you are using a battery with enough capacity to provide power to the board.

 

 

Besides the threads you have checked, I'm not aware of any project that uses a battery to power the Galileo board. I'd add, however, a recommendation to use an extra circuit to monitor the battery status and switch the power source once the battery reaches certain level that might not be enough to keep the board working properly.

 

 

Regards,

Conclusions:

- Threads on power from batteries already posted.

- Add power status circuit + power down in case of not enough power

- No known autonomous system/robot in the last year
