View Full Version : [Project] Implementing the Robobuilder wCK servo protocol in a windows DLL

02-04-2009, 10:25 PM

I have been working on a project at robosavvy to implement the several pieces of the robobuilder communications protocol as a DLL.

I have already implemented the remote control protocol which allowed me to create software to control Robobuilder using a PS2 joystick.

I am now working on implementing the native wCk protocol in a DLL as well. As you now (or not), the robobuilder controller has a mode where you can talk directly to the servos. It behaves very much like the usb2dynamixel from Robotis except that in this case you don't need the usb2dynamixel. You just connect the controller box to the PC.
I've posted the preliminary implementation of the protocol/DLL here http://robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3324

I would really like to get your feedback and appreciation on this :)

Wow, great work!

Thanks a ton! I'll have to check this out when my robot project schedule clears up.
