Professor E's Overview

This lesson demonstrates how to connect to JD for the first time.

Remember to start with a fully charged robot. Load the Example Project for JD and connect to the robot using Wi-Fi. Sometimes the servos of the robot will need to be adjusted to correct any minor hardware displacement. The EZ-Builder software can be used to create and save a servo profile. The arms and legs of the robot should be aligned, and there should not be any grinding or vibrating sounds.

Once JD is calibrated and connected, use the Auto Position and Soundboard controls to execute pre-built actions and routines. Remember to disconnect, power off, and charge the robot when finished.
