Just setup my Roli - quick and easy. Setup Wii controller no problem. Wifi is good and I can do the sample movements like dance and wave. All charged up. I have the ports setup as instructed and I entered the port summary. For the life of me I cant get the robot to move with ez builder or the wii remote . I've used the Roli sample project and saved it as a new name. I'm sure I've missed something that is very simple but I can't seem to figure it out. Any suggestions?
Any help is greatly appreciated - can't wait to see it move!
Thanks - Steve
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
@alan, yes, thanks for the post, mine was connected wrong as well.
Maybe a thread should be made to announce this quickfix for any other Roli ppl who have the same issue
Yes there are 4 more LEDs (A,B,C,D) on the H-bridge that should light up when the direction buttons are clicked on the Roli App or ARC Example Project if the H-Bridge is still ok. They will light up in different combinations of 2 with each new direction selected.
I see you have completed all the relevant tutorials, has everything gone successfully up until controlling the H-Bridge?
Thanks for the info. It sounds like the regulator on the H-bridge board is working (hence the power LED still being on) but the H-Bridge itself was likely damaged when power was reversed.
Thanks for your help! And to everyone else, always check your wiring before turning your robot on!
Thanks again! Jeff
Since this came mis-wired from the factory, wouldn't it be a warranty claim? (or @jwheat058, are you saying you had the red and black reversed on the EZ-B, so it was reversed polarity).
If it is not a warranty claim, I have a spare one I will sell you for list + USPS shipping cost (~$5 for priority mail). I'll replace it next time I have a larger order from EZ-B that will absorb the shipping costs.
If you want to go that route, my email address is in my profile. I accept Paypal, Amex Serve, or Google Wallet for ePayments.
Thanks for your help! Jeff
BTW, this is going in a Lunar display at a children's science center... I think they will like it! Jeff
That was a very easy mistake to make. It would be nice if there was some sort of prevention for us polarity-challenged bozos - maybe a diode or something?
Now on to calibrating my servos!
