Hey guys. I am just starting to write a script for my bot and I am trying to get data from a Parallax ping sensor and decide what to do with the data.
I think I have typed the script right but I am getting an error. Can you guys take a look and let me know where I messed up.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!
Again, I don't know if you have your sonar attached to two ports that need monitoring. Let me know what you find as I'll be using this in my build sometime soon.
Looks like you need to specify a value for the GetPing in this script.
I was just going by the example in the script helper for the GetPing. It says you need the trigger port and echo port. Since I am using a Parallax ping it only has 3 pins versus the one that comes with the kit it has 4.
The reason I like the Parallax ping is it saves on D ports.
I'll try that when I get a chance.
Thanks for the help Dave.
I wrote my first movement script trying to use numbers just like you did instead of a started variable and is would not work. Once I redid it all worked nicely. See my "Move Waist" script in B9 Robot Control in the EZ-Cloud.
Then i am going to add more code. I am excited to learn more coding I like to code. That is why I like my job as an electrician and working with Fanuc robots and plc's in a manufacturing plant.
If you use parallax ping with 3 wires ,you can simply use "getADC" instead of "getping" , because your sensor have just an analog output .
Getping is for sensor that need a trigger.
(sorry ,bad "frenchglish" *eyeroll* )
I never thought of using an ACD. Thanks for the idea I'll try it.
P.s your english is fine. Lol.
