First, you will need to follow the instructions to modify your Robosapien so that it runs with the ez-board.

The instructions are here:

Then unzip these files and put the .py scripts in a folder.

You will also need to download the EZ-robot SDK:

In a text editor, open the file you downloaded, and modify the two paths found near the top. They need to point to the location of the EZ_B.dll (found inside EZ-SDK\DLL\) and (wherever you put it). Note for non-Pythonistas: Python uses '\' rather than '/' for paths, even for scripts that run in windows.

The scripts need to be run inside IronPython, rather than Python, because of heavy dependencies on the .NET framework.

IronPython can be found here:

Once installed, run the IronPython console and type

[your path here]

I can promise to look at it:) I'm not a professional programmer, so it's always a struggle. It will take me a while to make sense of it, if at all.

Actually one of the things I am working toward is to make a LIDAR using a wiimote IR camera and a low power IR laser. For extra coolness, I was thinking of putting the Wiimote (without batteries) in one hand of my Robosapien and the IR laser mounted on the nunchuk in the other hand. The hard part is getting the Robosapien to coordinate the two:)

ITS very small script,on lower power laser the neato lidar is about 300ma and its 360 deg.

When i get to my house tonight ,since i am having a easter party at my moms and dads house i will post the file.

Was made by another programmer.

here is the python script for the neato lidar,would be very cool to others to have a interface to EZB for it.

Hey Dalex,

Do you know if this works with the latest versions of the SDK? I have a project that this could be useful on.

It looks like he hasn't posted in about a year. Hopefully he is still browsing the forums or an email will get his attention. If not, I will just have to try it and find out:)
