We have two issues with the existing camera that came in the kit. 1) It drops the link and can't get it back for hours or days. 2) Ever since the new SW builds, where we lost resolution control, it is inadequate to accomplish the tasks that we designed the bot to do. We are now at the end of our time and we have nothing to demonstrate because it...

Ez Robot Math

Hello Again, Has anyone figured out a way to do simple math with EZ Builder? We have servo position and camera coordinates. We are trying to couple them to derive driving and firing solutions, while scanning the camera. We used to do all of that with a Cortex. It seems pretty simple. Maybe we need to go with a different processor. Any thoughts are...

When I connect a 3-wire PWM motor to EZ B and try to control with PWM, nothing happens. Yet, when I connect it to a servo slider, I can control it. I am sourcing power from an external source, rather than from the EZ B port. Any...
