Re: Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hi Urs,

This afternoon I worked on it and I thought that it would be nice to be able to adjust the speed with a wheel... thus I fully agree with your idea :D!

To have this by the end of the month would be simply fantastic!

Once this will be ready, I will inform Velleman team and the community.

Of course if you'd need tester... I'm fully ok to help!

Best regards

Re: Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hi Urs,

As said by PM it's ok now... Very good job... Thanks a lot

Say me how you want to progress now before I send a mail to Velleman team to close (if you agree I'll point to your Apps to give information to the community about the new compatibility with this robot).

Best regards

Re: Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hi Urs,

It doesn't work but I think that you are very close to the solution.

You'll find attached parameters I have used (file = screenshot) and the result on the console (raspberry/Arduino Ide console) connected to the robot for debugging purpose. You'll see that all is correctly decoded until function but the reminder of the string is lost.

Tell me If you want I do other tests.

Regards

Re: Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hello,
I have just received information from Velleman support. Here after the mail:

=================================================================
Hi Meziane,

We are sending regular UART data at 2400 baud via IR.

The protocol can be reverse engineered by the arduino firmware
but an command look like
<WF 1 200>\r\n
WF is Walk forward
1 is how many steps
200 is the speed
and put it between angle brackets
==================================================================

Velleman sent also to me the link to the file invlved : https://github.com/Velleman/ALLBOTREMOT ... T/Robot.cs

I haven't had yet time to have a close look on this...

Regards

Re: Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hi Urs,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

I am going to try to contact Velleman to have more information about the protocol they are using. In fa tI cannot use learning function as the transmitter is not usable with my smartphone. From my part, I will continue to explore to see if I found something usable. I will keep you updated.

Best regards

Request for information / help to send characters string via IR

Hello,

I have just discovered IR Control and I need information and help for a very specific usage.

Currently I have an Allbot system (robot) which can be managed via Infrared. It uses an Arduino board with a Vrssm shield having the IR receiver. This equipment comes with an IR transmitter to be plug on the audio jack plug of a smartphone. Unfortunately this doesn't run with my smatphone.

I did some search on internet and found Ircontrol. I did some basic check and it appears that Ircontrol sending is recognized by my IR Receiver, unfortunately I don't see how to send specific strings to manage my robot. For example, in order the robot walks forward, I have to send the following string (without quotes):
"<WF 5 10 >\r\n>"

So my question is how can I achieve this as it seems me that with IRControl I can only send a numeric code?

Thatnk in advance for your answer even negative.

Best regards
