Voice Recognition

Hi, I'm using the voice recognition control and it is working quite well. I do a lot of presentations and show this feature often. Just before moving on to another control, I pause the VR (checkbox) but for reasons unknown the setting does not hold. I works initially. While I'm presenting, the robot responds to my voice and performs actions (sit,...

Hi, I'm using JD with the camera control (color and facial tracking). JD's head turns when tracking but in very small, jerky movements. I'd like his head to move more fluidly. Is there a...
question

Wiimote Question

Hi, I ordered a WiiMote Motion Plus and found out after the fact that it is incompatible with EZ Builder. This is stated in the tutorial. Is there a work-around? From what I see on Amazon all of the WiiMotes are Motion Plus except for a couple of used ones. Tom

Stopping An Action

Hi, This is a basic scripting question. I figured out how to do QR code tracking. It's pretty straight forward. I entered a word into the QR code generator and then created a script to speak the word in the Camera config. Then I figured out that a QR code could also trigger an action: Format Code 1: ControlCommand("Auto Position",...

question

Continuously Running Servos

Hi, I have two different projects where Roli is set to respond to the color red. One file works perfectly well. When I load the other, Roli's right servos start running immediately - no red ball visible anywhere. I deselected color tracking but the tread still runs. It's obviously getting a signal from somewhere but the settings between the two...

question

Defective Servo?

Hi, I have Six and it was working perfectly until just recently. One of the servos doesn't seem to be getting a signal or isn't responding. It was on port D1 so I swapped it for the servo on port D4. No luck. I opened it up to see if there was an obvious issue. All of the wires are soldered to the board. Any suggestions?

Can't Download Andriod App

Hi, I'm a newbie... I'm having trouble downloading the Android version of EZ Builder from the EZ Robot website. I'm getting a message on my tablet that says "For security, your tablet is set to block installation of apps obtained from unknown sources." There's a "Settings" button just below the message which I would assume leads you to where you...

3D Printing Question

Hi, I wanted to know if anyone has has experience printing EZ bits. I downloaded the STL files. I found that they require supports. Then of course, you have to remove the supports. This leaves a messy surface. Without supports my Replicator 2 (using PLA) just spews filament out. I have leveled the build plate. Has anyone had experience with this?...

New To Robotics

Hi, I'm new to robotics and have an EZ robot on order. It won't ship for a few weeks so in the meantime I figured I would learn to use the EB software. I get the basic idea from watching the tutorials online. Is there a better way to get a head start? Any advice would be appreciated. On another note, I am especially interested in educational...
