Tell us about yourself!
Great project. Congratulations. I just bought one of those buttons to use as a front gate buzzer for the project I am building here: https://youtu.be/qmGwe-IvD8Q but I am not sure how to wire it up. I dont need the LED, and just want to wire it to a Raspberry Pi to detect when button is pressed. Can you help me understand which contacts to use? Thanks very much!
I found it difficult to use the voice control though. Possibly because there was too much background noise. I have all these exciting ideas for an autonomous robot with voice control and I really want that part working well. Passing commands to google and back would be really useful if you can feature a solution about that. Getting the latest weather forecast for example.
Thanks DaveI see that you have managed to update the code sample. However it shows a reference to MeOrion.h rather than Makeblock.h. I assume MeOrion is correct, as I get an error when using Makeblock. It loaded fine after the changes were made and we were able to get the voice control working. For the standard wiring of the motors I think that."forward" will turn the robot ...as the code is running both motors at positive speed. One motor is actually reversed in the chassis, so forward actually involves running one motor at negative speed. But this will depend on how anyone has wired up the motors. Just switch the wires of one motor over if you find it is turning on the forward command.
Thanks for this great idea. However the code sample you provided does not compile. Am I correct in understanding that the 4 include statements without a filename should be replaced with the include statements relevant to your specific board? So with the starter robot you used, the include statements would be as below. Is that correct?#include <Arduino.h>#include <Wire.h>#include <SoftwareSerial.h>#include <MeOrion.h>I have made this change, but when I try to upload the code I get an error stating "avrdude stk500_cmd() programmer is out of sync"Do you know what might be the issue?
