PC Control These demos and projects allow the robot to be controlled via a computer.

ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.

Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.

Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.

Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.

Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.

Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.

Reference - These articles have technical details regarding the control and operation of the robot.

  2. Whegly Assembly Guide
  3. Wiring Whegly
  4. Whegly IR Control Code

This guide will teach you how to setup and use your Whegly 4x Continuous Turn Servo Terrain Capable Robot.

This guide will refer to the RobotGeek Geekduino, the Arduino Compatible microcontroller recommended for use with RobotGeek products. However this kit will also work with the Arduino Uno, or other Arduino variants like the Seeeduino.

The Whegly Getting Started Guide and Assembly Guides cover everything you'll need to know to get your Whegly up and running, but if you'd like to learn more in depth information about wiring, mounting, and writing your own code, check out RobotGeek 101

1. Setting up the Arduino Software

GEEKDUINO GETTING STARTED GUIDE

If you have not already set up your Geekduino/ Arduino compatible board, please see the Geekduino Getting Started Guide. This guide will assist you in getting set up with the Arduino software as well as install the RobotGeek Libraries.

2. Whegly Assembly Guide

Whegly Assembly Guide

At this point, follow through the proper Assembly Guide for your Whegly. Once you have completed the assembly, return here to wire, test, and run your Whegly.

3. Wiring Whegly

Make sure that both of your jumpers on the Sensor Shield are set to VIN.

4. Whegly IR Control Code

Whegly Demo Software

All of the Whegly demo code can be downloaded here. Once you unzip the file, rename the Whegly-master folder to Whegly. Put the Whegly folder in your RobotGeek sketches folder.

Documents -> Arduino -> RobotGeek sketches  

Now start/restart your Arduino IDE. Once the IDE is open, you can open the Analog Arm Control demo.

File -> Sketchbook -> RobotGeek sketches -> Kits -> Whegly -> whegbotGamepad 

Load the code onto your Geekduino. Once the code is uploaded, unplug the Geekduino from your computer and put your Whegly on the floor.

Switching the power switch on the battery wiring harness will turn Whegly on, allowing you to input commands on the IR Gamepad to send your Whegly off to conquer some tough terrain!
