Upload files to your Rover
This may be too easy, but Windows users will always ask...
Connect to the Rover WiFi.
Just after you open the software it will ask you for the Rover login details, as always:
IP: 10.0.0.1 | Login: pi | Password: raspberry
and click 'login'.
Now in the right window you'll see all the files located in your Rover.
You can upload files by dragging them from your local computer and dropping them inside Turtle Rover's file system
You can use
scptool for this. Just type:
If you want to copy a whole directory you can add
Alternatively you can use
sshfsto mount remote file system into your local directory
Now you can just put files inside [local_path] and it will be automatically synchronized with a remote directory.
When you're done just unmount the directory by typing
sudo umount [local_path]
By default when logging as
piuser you have write permission only on files inside
/home/pidirectory. This should be sufficient in most cases but if you really need to upload files outside of home directory you have a couple of options.
First, login to the Rover's console via ssh
Create a directory if it doesn't exist
sudo mkdir -p [upload_directory]
Now, assign the ownership of that directory
sudo chown -R pi:pi [upload_directory]
This will change ownership of [upload_directory] and all files inside it to
You can then get access to all files by logging to
Modifying root file system can be a destructive operation so if you don't fully understand what you're doing make sure to backup your files first
