Hi folks,

I would like to know if it is possible to connect a Bioloid on MyRobots.com, and if so, how?

Thanks a lot,

One way to connect a Bioloid to MyRobots, you will need to use its wireless communication to serially connect to a computer. From the computer, you will need to periodically poll Bioloid's sensors and post them to the Website. You can use the sample python code to do the posting, but you will need to develop your own Bioloid system.

Another way that makes the Bioloid more stand-alone, is to make it post information via the open serial protocol used by the serial gateway python and Arduino samples. This method is preferred as this communication protocol will be further developed to include receiving data from MyRobots, but it might be a bit more difficult since you need to make a program that runs ion the robot itself.

Either way, if you get your Bioloid connected, let us know so we can possibly feature your code on the MyRobots Wiki. If your code is accepted, you could even become a contributor on the github Repository.
