Thread: ArbotixRobocontroller vs Arbotix Comander programming importance...

  1. ArbotixRobocontroller vs Arbotix Comander programming importance...

    Hello everyone,

    I have just bought PhantomX Hexapod and I have started to work with him. Its very interesting and I really like it. Until now i have managed to make it work only with firmwares from Trossen but i would like also to start writing some codes on my own to make things more interesting But I would like to know what is the difference between Arbotix-M and Geekduino microcontroller when we talk about programming (I mean if i would like to create a new way of walking, which one of them should i program?). Can someone give me some more information?
    I would like to make some more projects with this toy but I do not have enough information :\
    Also if I would like to put a camera on hexapod, i suppose i can use Arbotix-M's ports to collect information from camera?

    Thank you and looking forward for some help

    Congratulations on your purchase, I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun and learn a lot along the way.

    There is a wealth of information available in this forum and on the Trossen site with more than enough great material on things you can do, including the following thread I started some time ago http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/sh...ark-II-amp-BBB.

    So, I'd suggest first working through the numerous great articles and information contained on this site to understand what's possible and where to start depending on the path you wish to take.

    A first good project though is to install the Phoenix Code on your Hexapod to start to get a glimpse of what's possible. Take a look here: http://learn.trossenrobotics.com/10-...8-phoenix-code
