Understanding the hole 50$ robot software
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:39:41 AM »
Hello! Where can I find detailed information about 50$ robot robot programming that I downloaded! I mean I want to understand what each command line does!

To understand that You need to understand how to program specific microcontroller and how to use relevant datasheet to Your advantage. But then, if You know how to do it all Yourself - You can write $50 Robot program Yourself. So, the only way to achieve what You want is to start with basic microcontroller programming tutorials to gather required knowledge ans skills :)

I'm not sure what You're asking for.

Here are good tutorials for programming an Arduino: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/HomePage

I don't know if the $50 robot uses PIC or AVR -- if it's AVR, then it's very similar to the Arduino. If it's PIC, then it's similar in spirit, but not in practice.

Thank you so much! Do you know some good AVR tutorials? I found one, but I assume you know more than me!

That changes the IO/digital pins of the controller. Exactly how is hopefully explained among the Arduino tutorials I already linked to. (The Arduino also uses the function digitalWrite() and pinMode() to do similar things)

Could the uploaded software be found as a Visual Studio project somewhere?

What uploaded software? And what does AVR program had to do with Visual Studio (IDE for Windows programming)?

Is it ok to use and modify uploaded programs, CAD files for my university thesis work?
