Neo Pixel Control

Has there ever been a ez-robot neo pixel controller made yet? Yes I realize it can be done with an arduino especially with the canned program someone wrote for it to make rainbow colors. Id like to be able to control it myself via the ez-builder. Thanks guys Chris Jeremie is there a source for just that board? I can probably source all the parts...

Online Collaboration

Ive been thinking about this a bit lately... I think it would be kind of neat to set up a kind of programming collaboration through team view or some other.

Dynamixel Communication

Hello, I am slightly confused about which protocol is needed to run dynamixel servos. I purchased a few ax12 a servos for lower strength applications, but I'm also interested in an mx 64 t or 64 r which appears to be either ttl or rs 485 protocols. Which protocol does port d5 on the ezb 4 use. I read some posts from old bit builder , he was using...

Script Help

Hey guys I need a bit of assistance with this tiny part of a script. IF ($Lelbowposition >68) And ($Relbowposition <1) I want this to be known as "safe position" So later in my larger script it will check arm" safe position "before moving forward. Can I just use an equals sign at the end of the statement and call it " safe position" Thanks Chris

Ax12 Led On/Off Command In Ez Script

Hello, I set up one of my dynamixels tonight, used the plug in, wrote scripting to "exercise" this servo. All works fine. In EZ script there is an instruction AX12Led(port,on) and AX12Led(port,off). I cant make either of these work. Using the plug in I can turn the LED on the servo on and off. Is there a way via scripting to do this. During startup...

C ++ Programming

Ezb 4 And Pulse Out For A Chopper Drive
