Keeping Boxer Updated

Boxer is always being improved, both its own software and the many community ROS packages upon which it depends! You can use the apt package management system to receive new versions all software running on the platform.

Updating the Base Platform

Otto Motors periodically releases updates for the Otto 100, which can be applied to Boxer’s base platform.

Please refer to Otto Motors’ documentation for details on applying software updates.

At the time of writing, the latest version of the Otto 100 software supported by the Boxer’s Noetic backpack is 2.22.3.

Updating the Backpack PC

The backpack PC can be updated by connecting it to the internet, either using a wired or wireless connection, and running the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Starting From Scratch

If Boxer’s computer has become inoperable, or for any reason you want to restore it to the factory state, you can reinstall the operating system by following the steps outlined in Installing Boxer’s OS.
