we received a Go1 from quadruped.de a few weeks ago. We tried to use the Obstacle Avoidance Mode with the Controller as follows:
From the docs
GO1 Basic Operations
In advanced mode (Triggered by pressing START two times rapidly):
- Obstacle avoidance: Y (On)
- Obstacle avoidance: X (Off)
We expected Go1 to react like in this video
However, Go1 starts walking backwards immediately when Y is hit on the controller until either it walks into something or we cancel the Obstacle Avoidance Mode.
This happens no matter how much space is around Go1 (we tried in an empty space of 4mx4m in front of Go1).
During a call with quadruped a few weeks ago, the key account manager mentioned, that the Obstacle Avoidance Mode sometimes is deactivated in shipments from Unitree and needs to be activated first.
Could this be the issue here?
