scripts default iconPhantomX Robot Turret Controller (Scripts) Publisher's description

1) You will need at least an Arduino board which can talk RS495 and 1 dynamixel servo

Control the Trossen Robotics PhantomX RoboTurret:

Or more generally to control AX12 dynamixel servos connected to an Arbotix board.

See here for demonstration video:

1) You will need at least an Arduino board which can talk RS495 and 1 dynamixel servo
2) If you want to modify the Arduino code it wouldn't be hard to get it to work on another Arduino compatible board
which can (or has a shield to allow it to) talk to Dynamixel servos

__ Instructions __
1) Burn the PhantomXTurret.pde to your arbotix board
2) For how to:
- use the basic controller type "help PhantomXMessagePort" into matlab command line
- write/load/play an unlimited sequence of movements type "help PhantomXSequencePlayer" into matlab command line
- use the GUI type "help PhantomXTurretGUI" into matlab command line

Note: a serial port and a message port are different things. The serial port is lower level and only talks serial,
while the message port understands the hardware and sends/processes control messages to/from the serial port.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
