Step 1: 3D Printing
Step 2: Software
Install the following software on your Pi:
- Start by installing Debian on Pi
- Download Raspbian.
- Unzip the file
- Write the disc image to your microSD card
- Put the microSD card in your Pi and boot up
- Open chromium browser on your Pi
- Go to the following link: Arduino
- Download and install the software for Linux ARM
Step 3: Pre-Assembly Software and Hardware Check
Serial Communication Check (optional)
1. Upload the "PiArduinoCommunicationTest.ino" which is in "RaspberryPi-Minikame/Pre-Assembly Checks/Serial Communication Check/" to your Arduino Board.
Open a new terminal on your Raspberry Pi and execute the following:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade <p>git clone <a href="https://github.com/LakshBhambhani/RaspberryPi-Mini..." rel="nofollow"> https://github.com/LakshBhambhani/RaspberryPi-Min...</a></p><p>cd RaspberryPi-Minikame/Pre Assembly Checks/Serial Communication Check/</p><p>sudo python pi_duino.py</p>
Open the Serial Monitor on the Arduino IDE and check for "hi" and "hello" being printed
2. Server Check (optional)
On the same terminal as before execute the following:
cd .. cd Server Check sudo python weblamp.py
Now, If you load the URL on browser, you should see a weblamp control page. Your URL would be the IP address of your raspberry pi. Ex: 192.168.0.36
Homing all Servos (MUST-DO) Number your servos and upload the following code to Arduino to home your servos. Remember: Each servo has been set to a different home location. So each one has a different use and cannot be mixed up randomly later. Link to HomingServos.ino Code
Step 4: Installation of Servos on the Base
Step 5: Assembly of the Legs
Step 6: Joining Legs and the Base
Step 7: Wiring
Connect the Raspberry Pi to Arduino using a USB cable
Connect the Servos using the following port numbers:
FL_HIP = (4);
FL_FOOT = (5);
FR_HIP = (6);
FR_FOOT = (7);
BL_HIP = (8);
BL_FOOT = (9);
BR_HIP = (10);
BR_FOOT = (11);
Step 8: The Server
Execute the following in your terminal to get your server up and running. For now, you might have to execute the server python file each time your pi reboots. V2 of RaspberryPi-Minikame should get rid of that
cd RaspberryPi-Minikame cd Server sudo python quad.py
Step 9: Arduino Code
Upload the following code to your Arduino and do remember to open the Serial Monitor to use your Quadruped.
