Need some basic code for robotic arm with 5 DOF
« on: September 11, 2010, 10:41:32 AM »
I began a project for school making a robotic arm with 5 DOF. I bought an Axon 2 and servos and downloaded all the Webbotlib and AVR stuff, but the bootloader wont work on my system. I have a 64-bit computer. I cant afford to spend money on a hardware programmer. I also have run into trouble finding code for a project as simple as this one. Someone please help!!!

You might be out of luck on this one. FBOOT on 64bit computers has been a rising issue, and I seem to remember someone was working on it, but never posted results.

Money for an Axon and servos but none to spare on a programmer? Even a really nice $20 one?

Have any friends with a 32 bit computer?

The other trick i have used is installing a winXP virtual machine to be able to use FBOOT. Have any license keys for winXP?
