I want to start a new tutorial, and for this I am hoping for your input as well to make this work. With the ability of connecting more than one EZ-B v4 to a robot project, I feel that it would be very helpful for new and established members (myself included) to find out exactly what can be done using more than one v4.
My idea is to document what can and cannot be done on a secondary board, with a simple to understand format with a short explanation. There is information of what is achievable using more than one board in the EZ-Script menu (some may be included in this thread), clicking the "Help" icon on controls, and in the tutorials in the learn section, and some of EZ-builders controls have the option to select a board. But having a one stop list of all what can be done all in one place may be easier to search through, some of which may not be covered or easily understood in the script menu and learn section.
Some posible subjects with posible script examples that could be covered are...
.) GetVoltage and GetCPUTemp
.) MP3 triggers
.) Serial commands
.) ADC ports (eg, ADC sensor readings)
.) Digital ports (eg, Digital On/Off)
.) Ping sensors (with or without motor controllers)
.) Battery monitor scripts
.) Using Cheat Sheet (Control Commands)
.) Auto Position control
.) Limitations and differences using "AP mode" and "Client mode" with multiple boards.
and I'm sure that there are more subjects I have missed.
I know that many of the experienced members here use multiple boards in their projects, so your input here would be would be valuable and most welcome. So to anyone who wants to participate in this dynamic tutorial, remember to keep it short, easy to understand, and give simple script examples where appropriate so that our newer members and current users who find scripting a bit challenging, can pick thing up quickly and easily.
Add as few or as many as you like, and if you see anything that you think may be incorrect, then please let us know with your correct answer and solution. And if you have something you would like to ask about using multiple boards, don't be afraid to ask however silly you may think the question is, and we'll see if someone can answer you. I hope you all find this a good and useful idea, and I hope you take part in an effort to helping our fellow community members.
