How To Download and Use This Control

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of EZ-Builder installed.
  2. Select the Install button below to download the file.
  3. Double click the downloaded file to open installer.
  4. The installer will add this control to EZ-Builder.

The indoor positioning system is a combination of IR transmitter and IR dual camera receiver. The IR transmitter is mounted on your robot, and the IR dual camera receiver is placed in a corner of the room. You can mount the camera on a tripod so it can see the room with the 100 degree wide angle lens.

There are three variables created that return the current status of the IPS navigation and heading degrees of the robot. These variables in EZ-Script can be used to identify when the robot is navigating and what direction it is moving.

Required USB driver: USB Virtual Com Port Driver.zip

No hardware released yet, but the plug-in is shown operating in the video. The plug-in given is not complete. I wanted to see how the waypoints work. The plug-in doesn't show or reference them. I wanted to see how to use the plug-in. I am asking for an example script of what was shown in the video.

Where do you purchase a IR transmitter?

and a IR dual camera receiver, at this time?

Not yet available but is open source on GitHub if you have a way to build one.

Yay!   I am really looking forward to this.  Will get me back in the workshop working on my bots again.   (Although I also really want reasonable cost Lidar for object avoidance too, but this will solve my main autonomous navigation issues, which is just awareness of where the robot is).
