How to Connect to The Raspberry Pi Robot Without A Home Network - Part 7Wednesday, July 27, 2016
I will be using a software image called CINCH, which requires no network setup to connect to the Raspberry Pi mounted onboard the GoPiGo robot. This method is great because sometimes I have issues getting my Raspberry Pi GoPiGo robot on my home WiFi network. You simply turn on the Raspberry Pi GoPiGo and CINCH will automatically broadcast a WiFi network called "dex". Once you connect to it, you can go right away to "http://dex.local/" and start programming!
Using CINCH for connecting to the Raspberry Pi GoPiGo robot is definitely much easier than connecting with Ethernet first, and then setting up the WiFi through your home network. Here are the steps to connecting to the Raspberry Pi GoPiGo robot without a home network:
Step 1) Head over to Dexter Industries Raspbian Flavor Cinch and download the CINCH image RAR file (size 1.2 GB)
