Install the program in the local hard drive (e.g. c:\CodeSourcery) and add the compiler path to the system.
Download the Windows version of the make and rm programs in the computer. A copy of these programs can be found here. Uncompress them in a local directory (e.g. c:\tools ).
In order to communicate and being able to transfer data and programs to the brick, we need to install a telnet, a ssh and a scp client programs. I have tested PuTTy, (telnet and ssh clients) and PSCP (scp client). After downloading these programs, place the executable files in the local hard drive (e.g. c:\tools).
Add the path of the recently installed programs (c:\tools) to the system.
Finally install a text editor of your choice to modify and create programs (e.g. notepad++, vim, sublime).
After installing these tools, users should be able to use most of the command line instructions provided to Linux users.
We had a great time at TechTwilight 2014 . We are very thankful to the organizers from the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum that invited us to this event. Our exhibit received the Vincent Van Google award “for demonstrating how creative robots can be when their programmer is artistic.” We appreciate it very much. Below are a few pictures:
I have started creating some new material for a section that will discuss basic use of inertial sensors in robotic applications. I added a new section that talks about accelerometers and Euler angles. I hope it clarifies a few misconceptions about these sensors and their use. It now includes test programs.
The Lego Drawing Robot received some attention at CES 2014. I had the opportunity to meet many Lego fans, and people from a variety of different industries. I want to thank Microinfinity for the opportunity to show the Drawing Robots in this event. I have found the Lego Drawing robot featured in a few newspapers and on-line magazines.
I am at CES now, joining the Microinfinity booth. I’ve had the opportunity to talk with many people belonging to the Lego community. If you happen to be in this event stop by booth 22059 located in the Robotics section in the lower level of the South Hall.
