You’ve put together the XRP and got it moving, now for a servo and sensor challenge! Follow along with the latest video in the XRP series.Favorited Favorite 0
Together with our partners, we've been developing a number of resources to support the XRP community. In this post, we will provide you instructions on how to use your servo, sensors, and a delivery challenge for your XRP to navigate.
In this video Rob and Dryw show how to get the XRP servo moving and utilizing its sensors using XRPCode. This is the recommended programming environment to use when programming your XRP. Blockly is demonstrated in this video, which is great for anyone new to programming, but they also show the Python code in case you’d like to program your XRP in that language. Follow the written version of the guide here If you have just received your XRP, make sure to follow along on the first two videos that cover building your XRP and getting it moving.
Assembling the XRP robot is easy, but be sure to follow the steps here to be sure that the wiring is correct and all the pieces are added correctly to the chassis. This step-by-step will get your robot assembled, tested, and ready to start programming! Follow the written version of the guide here.
Getting your XRP robot moving is an exciting first step to the world of robotics. This step-by-step guide will get your robot moving and get you comfortable coding through XRPCode! Follow the written version of the guide here.
We want to know what you create with your XRP! Rob used the lessons here to create a nod to Wile E. Coyote, and Dryw took it a step further by creating a delivery challenge with your bot. What image can you program your XRP to create? Make sure to let us know on social media by tagging @sparkfun.
Thank you for pre-ordering the XRP! We are shipping these kits out in the order that they were purchased, so if you haven't received yours yet, don't worry, we're in the process of building them up for you now! Additionally, if you plan to purchase a kit, please go ahead and place a backorder - this will ensure you are in queue!
We are excited to get these kits as well as the programming environment into your hands! If you are looking to learn more about the Experiential Robotics Platform, click the button below to visit the official web page and forum.
