Misc / Re: Kickstarter Campaing: Formula Allcode
« Last post by mklrobo on August 11, 2015, 08:33:19 AM »
 ;D Hello!
I love the concept, and the buggy. I looked over the platform, and the 16 bit processor is
sealed. The platform does have a slot for SD card. The Formula Allcode is truly open to
control form other sources.
However, I could make a platform like this with my Raspberry Pi and Axon already, with more expandability.
Your main strength is  awesome support, plenty of code, lots of learning material, and great electronic
diagnostic support. The "trick" is to give as much programming support, as possible. If people can not program it,
it is a daunting task for people to truly make it their robot. I hope your project rules!!   8)
Misc / Kickstarter Campaing: Formula Allcode
« Last post by MatrixTSL on August 11, 2015, 06:58:35 AM »
This morning, Matrix TSL launched their first Kickstarter campaign. The robot can be used with hosts including Windows, MAC, Raspberry Pi, Android and iPhone and a number of examples can be seen in our headline video and on our website at

A low cost robot buggy, the AllCode is great for makers to test their skills and capabilities using an interesting and diverse platform or for introducing younger school children to programming and robotics in a fun and motivating way with huge scope for further work and competitions.

The video below explains more about the vision for Formula AllCode and provides some examples of what the robot itself can achieve when used with Raspberry Pi, Android, Flowcode etc.

Misc / Re: Analyzing the Axon series: Coding, Construction, and Contraptions

 ;D Hello!
Thank you Gertlex for your input.
I have thought about starting another thread, but observed some issues with that perspective.
I have looked through the forum, and found some nuggets that are very helpful. I could not find
much on the discussion of actual programming, problems therein, architecture of the Axon,
or any support directed at the Axon, from a newbie's point of view.
So, I thought, I would record my journey through the Axon construction/programming. This thread,
while lengthy, can (I hope) provide one stop for information that any newbies (like me) would need
to use, without scanning through 4 hours of posts; then maybe you will find it.  :'(
I have only found 2 people who actually discussed programming code on this forum. I have communicated with
other newbies who love the Axon, but are in the same boat I am in.  :'(
If there is ANY information that you have on beginning to code the Axon, I am all ears! I would appreciate your
help!   ;D

Misc / survey on the usage of home robots

I am currently pursuing my masters in Information Security. As a part of my thesis (on vulnerabilities in home robots), i am conducting a small survey on Usage of home robots. I shall be truly grateful, if you could spare 2 mins and complete this survey. Thanks a million for the help
Software / Re: Industrial Robot Offline Programming

I am sorry. I should have been a bit more clear. I work on Industrial Robots used in manufacturing industries. Off-line programming (OLP) is a robot programming method where the robot program is created independent from the actual robot cell. The robot program is then uploaded to the real robot for execution. (Thanks to Wikipedia). Right now I am advised to use Siemens PLM, where both simulation and OLP available. I need to perform it using Open Source. Currently the software I use help me to perform simulation, but want to bring in OLP, which I am unable to get one.

I skimmed the last few posts... if you have specific questions, e.g. programming the Axon/Axon2, there's way too much stuff here for anyone to help you in a timely manner, so you'd be best off making a new thread to address a specific issue you are having.
Software / Re: Industrial Robot Offline Programming

No idea what an IR is in this context... So no idea what you're modeling.  "Robot Offline Programming" doesn't clearly mean anything either.

So without any real information, all I will suggest is: ROS and Gazebo, etc. are a set of tools that you can program and simulate (respectively) pretty much anything in, given enough time.  They're open source.  The learning curve can be quite steep, but these tools get used significantly in industry/research (e.g. the Darpa Robotics Challenge, which provided funding for Gazebo's development; and numerous robotics startups use ROS).

I stuck with using Webbotlib 2.11 and Project Designer.
Software / Industrial Robot Offline Programming
« Last post by antoronson on August 09, 2015, 11:29:58 AM »
Hello All
I am a beginner user of Robot Simulation softwares and am using those for one of my project. I modelled an IR using V-Rep and am interested to simulate its working through offline programming. I was suggested to use Delmia, Process Simulate and the like. Since I am a student, I am looking for an opensource software which I can perform the above activities. I request you to suggest me an open source software for Robot Offline Programming.
