More Information On Features

would it be possible to get some more information on motion tracking and pandora, i would love to see a example script using these

Examples im looking for are a motion tracking script where you can tell the robot to follow an item and it will and a video on the setup process for pandora

also is there a way to pull one project into another so i can use an example script as part of my current project

With motion tracking and following you need to be careful not to track the robots movement too. If the robot moves it will see motion as the image from it's camera will have changed.
Every control has a ? which will take you to the help page for that control. There are also mouse over help icons on the controls which explain each item.
To follow motion you just need to enable motion tracking in the camera control and enable the camera control to control the movement of the robot in the camera configuration.
As for Pandora, this is a third party service which EZ-Robot didn't have any involvement in. The control was added as it was requested by a few people. Pandora's website has information on how to set up your own bot and is the best source for help. There is an example in the examples folder of ARC which gives some additional information on how to use the pandora control to move servos and use script commands, this is most likely the most help EZ-Robot can provide on the control.

Yes. Use the Merge function. It's in the file ribbon next to Open. Click on it, select the project you want to import from, select the controls from the list that appears and they will be imported in to the open project.

Hi you might be looking for the example scripts and usage, when on the examples tab of opening a new project there are two folders that begin with EZ-Script that you should check.

There has been a new update of ARC since that bug occurred so it should be fixed with all of the examples once you update.

i wish it was fixed but i update daily and had the issue a few hours ago when i was working on the robot

The example folder is saved in Documents\EZ-Builder\Examples

If it is coming and going as you say it is then you have some very strange issues with your PC.

I'm not sure what you mean by the online copy, there is no online copy of the examples...

ow then i have never seen them i thought everything was in those examples online like the one i made advanced robot, and i have looked there and the folder does not exist, i have 6 folders includeing my projects but no examples folder, is there somewhere i can download these?

i never got a chance to go throught the exmaple folder before the update caused the program to say the folder was missing as an error window at which point i checked for it manually and just rechecked where you said and its not there nor was it when i checked after the update

The example folder is created and populated every time you install ARC, there was one release where that folder lost the project files in it, but it has been fixed in the newest release.
If you seem to be having the problem even after updating to the newest version, you might need to completely uninstall the program and then install it again.

that solved the empty folder problem, thanks
