You’ve just downloaded an incredible package of software technology that we’ve put together for you for free – we hope you get a lot of value out of it.

We hope that you’d like to stay in touch. That way when we have more good stuff to share with you, we can let you know.

You’ll be able to:
– Hear about new software distributions right away
– Be the first to know when we release a new robot
– Hear about new free software products

Installing Pi Images

Under Ubuntu Linux we recommend using the GNOME Disks tool to flash images onto the Micro SD card as it has native support for xz compressed images. If you haven’t installed it, simply run sudo apt install gnome-disk-utility. Then you can double click on the downloaded image file, the GNOME Disks tool will automatically come up, and you can direct it to expand the image on to an SD card drive attached to your computer.

On other operating systems we recommend using etcher to flash images onto SD cards.

Getting Started

NOTE: When the Raspberry Pi boots for the first time, it resizes the file system to fill the SD card, this can make the first boot take some time.

If you want to use our image for something other than our robots, please read this document.

On a Pi, our image comes up as a Wifi access point. The SSID is ubiquityrobotXXXX where XXXX is part of the MAC address. The wifi password is robotseverywhere.

Once connected, it is possible to log into the Pi with ssh [email protected] with a password of ubuntu. If you connect up a keyboard and mouse enter the password ubuntu at the prompt.

If you are not running on one of our robots run sudo systemctl disable magni-base to ensure that our startup scripts get disabled.

About the Pi Images

The Ubiquity Robotics Raspberry Pi images are based on Ubuntu 16.04. They are pre-installed with ROS, perfect for building your Raspberry Pi robots. Based on the wonderful work of Ubuntu Pi Flavor Makers.

The pre-2020 Pi Images are designed to work with the Raspberry Pi 3 (Model B and B+), and the ones from 2020 onward with the Pi 4. We do not test on any other Pis. They are known to not work at all on the Original Pi and the Pi Zero.
