Using Robotis cm-530 with smartphone
« on: January 02, 2016, 12:09:02 PM »
Hey guys, I recently bought a robotis bioloid premium kit and want to get other functionality from it like talking object detection. I know that the arduino has a shield called 1sheeld that lets you interface it with a smart phone and gives you pretty much full control over all the sensors on the phone. Is there a way for me to somehow do that with the cm530? Or would I have to use a different microcontroller? I really want to use arduino but it would be too bulky when I add the things needed to program the dynamixels and connect wirelessly and so on. Well, anyways, any advice or help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You may have better luck asking this question on the forums at  Fairly large community of robotis users there (bioloid kits/dynamixel servos)

Trossen also sells the Arbotix-M which includes dynamixel connectors and an XBee header. Might be of interest.
