By calculating the difference between the two (“prox.ground.delta”), Thymio can deduce the absence or presence of the ground.There's a lot of talk these days about the bleak future of employment: Claims that robots will steal all the jobs are commonplace.) Seven distance sensors are arranged around the Thymio, five at the front and two at the back.The simplest way to check these sensors is to pass your hand in front of each one to make sure they all respond correctly. The values obtained by these sensors can be seen in the “prox.horizontal” variables.If your Thymio mobile robot does not light up, or if it’s not detected when you plug it in via USB, refer to the “Solutions for common problems” section found at the end of this guide.Pull down the “_fwversion” variable to see the firmware version number. If this is not the version displayed, we recommend you update the firmware by following the instructions on this page of the Thymio & Aseba site (don’t forget to exit Aseba Studio before beginning this update!Applies to Motor Controller, Servo Controller, Device Interface, and Legacy Module. 268KB PDF File Module Repair Service Form If you have a damaged USB mini port or your Power Distribution Module only illuminates one LED and is not covered under warranty, use this form to repair your modules. 248KB PDF File Core Control Modules Includes the Core Power Distribution Module, Core Device Interface, Core Legacy Module, Core Motor Controller, and Core Servo Controller. 1.69MB STP File Modern Robotics Sensors Includes the Integrating Gyro, Optical Distance Sensor, Touch Sensor (released and pressed), IR Seeker V3, Color Sensor, Range Sensor, Compass and Acceleration Sensor, and IR Locator 360. 375KB Zip File Matrix K9 This robot can be built using the parts included in the 2015 Matrix Competition Kit. 37.3MB PDF File To request a product replacement under warranty, use the Hardware Troubleshooting Guide above.
And then there's a little thing called the Robotic Operating System (ROS).
