- We’ve assembled our Allbot VR408 (making use of an Arduino One)
- We’ve successfully uploaded VR408Scratch.ino
- We’ve put the switch from “Program” mode to “Receive” mode. (It would be good to explicitely mention that somewhere in the step by step guide)
(Btw, what a pity you can’t reach that switch anymore once the battery shield is mounted.)
- We connect our allbot with the computer via an USB-cable and hear the 3 chirps
- We switch on the VRSSM battery shield and the allbot tries to stand up. I say ‘tries’ because it seems it isn’t able to push up its own weight. We lay it on its back.
- We start up “ALLBOT Communicator” and hear three chirps again
- We press “Verbind” (=“Connect”) and hear three chirps again
- We start up “Scratch 2 Offline Editor”. The connection seems to be OK. Green light:
- We Shift+Click File > Import Experimental HTTP extension and select ‘extension_descr.s2e’
- Now in Scratch2, we make the simple ‘program’: When green flag clicked -> “Zet 1 stap(pen) naar voor” (=“move 1 step(s) forward”)
- When we press the green flag in Scratch 2 nothing happens…
Any ideas what’s going wrong?
Can we type something in the Arduino IDE to have the allbot make a move?
Thanks in advance.
PS. In the manuals they’re talking about centering the servo’s. We didn’t do that. Is this necessary?
