Thread: How should I write an "AX-S1-like" program for querying CM-510 sensors?

  1. #1

    Question How should I write an "AX-S1-like" program for querying CM-510 sensors?

    I'm trying to read the new Bioloid Premium sensors from USB2dynamixel (or serial port with Toss mode). There are several ways...

    But I think that the most interesting way would be writing a C program by which the CM-510 acts as another "dynamixel" device, answering the queries directed to him (ID 200, 0xC8). That is, using it like the "old" AX-S1 to get the sensors values.

    It should be possible because there is a "monitor" command in the CM-510 firmware that show all packets sent/received from the usb2dynamixel. I have tried it but it doesn´t work .

    It works!

    Well, at least I have managed to create a toss mode program, and then it has been very simple to create a "device mode" for CM-510.

    Now I will clean up the code and write the "answers" with the sensors values

    Finally I have used the new Robotis libraries.

    I believe that CM-510 has a build-in AX-S1. The main difference being able to change sensors.

    My $.02.
