Reliable solution to USB ports


The USB ports are not reliable for rugged use and leads to the cameras getting disconnected every once in a while. I am aware of the other camera solutions like CSI, but ask for solutions for USB ports.
Is there any way to make the connection stable ? (Maybe removing the ports and soldering the wires… but that is not economical)


Is this caused by connection issue?
Will it help if have a USB Hub or fix the connection with hot glue?

Hi @edli1983,
Yes, it is the connection issue; as the entire robot moves, the USB gets disturbed some times.
I don’t think hot glue would be a mass solution :(

This is a potential solution

Although this is for Intel’s RealSense Camera… can be generalised. Look Here

Yes, the screw gives good connection.
