Using Two Ez-B

Hello friends. I'm trying touse TWO Ez-b on my MOVUC project. One for upper servos. ( arms, head, eyes..) and another one for sensors and Movement panel... My question is: how do I use the ARC to tell in witch board execute a specific scriptL?!. See... I know that when I create a servo control I can assign to a board 1, 2, etc.. But when I use those servos on a script to, let's say, Blink the eyes, I don't know how to send that to the board where that servos are attached... And, when I use an movements panel, it only sends signal to the board 1! And I would like to connect it to board 2... Do I have to run two ARC at the sabe time to do that ? Thanks!

Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro is your passport to a world of endless possibilities in robot programming, waiting for you to explore.

You can specify the board in the script commands.

Scroll down in the EZ-Script dialogue on the right and there is a mention of multiple boards; Multiple EZ-B Boards ARC supports multiple physical EZ-B Boards connected to your computer. You can specify the board by putting the board number in front of the port...

Type Multiple EZ-B Boards as a search term in the EZ-Script Script help and hit find next, it should take you to the explanation.

For instance, move a servo to position 100 on D0 of board 2 you would use Servo(2.D0,100)


Great! Thanks a lot for the tip! But.. What about the movement panel... How to set to board 2?...


It automatically defaults to board number 0 I think so I'd say make the board that has the motors attached board number 0.

The Movement Panel is only available for board 0.

If you absolutely must have the Movement Panel on a different board then you can use the custom Movement Panel and write scripts to create the movement, however just reorganising your EZ-Bs so the drivetrain is on EZ-B 0 is a much simpler method.


Thanks friends! You rock! Now I know exactly how to do it!
