Thread: Problems with Probing Robot

  1. Problems with Probing Robot

    I recently received a Bioloid Comprehensive kit and I've been building several of the easier robots before tackling the humanoid. I've had no problems at all until I finished the Probing Robot. It didn't work correctly, so I started looking at the bpg file "DemoExample(Probing Robot).bpg."

    The problem is in lines 66, 67, and 68 of the program. As originally written, they are:

    66. IF (5:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 5:8 <- 0
    67. IF (6:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 6:8 <- 0
    68. IF (7:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 7:8 <- 0

    I noticed that this put dynamixels 5, 6, and 7 in free turn mode instead of joint mode, so I made the following changes:

    66. IF (5:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 5:8 <- 1023
    67. IF (6:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 6:8 <- 1023
    68. IF (7:8 != 0) THEN LOAD 7:8 <- 1023

    This caused the robot to work correctly, but the following error message appeared.

    ERROR:8100[0115] 005 003 032 030

    I made the following changes, and the error message disappeared:

    66. IF (5:8 = 0) THEN LOAD 5:8 <- 1023
    67. IF (6:8 = 0) THEN LOAD 6:8 <- 1023
    68. IF (7:8 = 0) THEN LOAD 7:8 <- 1023

    The error message also appeared if I changed to this:

    66. LOAD 5:8 <- 1023
    67. LOAD 6:6 <- 1023
    68. LOAD 7:8 <- 1023

    I'm mystified as to why the error appeared and how to interpret it, but it seems to be related to loading 1023 into address 8 of the dynamixel.

    There are two other problems with the program as written. The first is in line 36, which is:

    36. IF (Watching time > Watching time) THEN JUMP Avoid obstacle

    The correct line should be similar to line 25:

    36. IF (Watching time > Reference time) THEN JUMP Avoid obstacle

    The last problem is in line 28, which is:

    28. LOAD Watching time <- 3

    I think this should be similar to line 19:

    28. LOAD Watching time <- 1

    With these changes everything runs smoothly!!

    (By the way, I have CM-5 version 1.15 and BCP version 1.27)
