What help do you need? You send serial data to the bot and the bot does what it was told to do when it gets that serial data.

There are examples in the Parallax documentation on the boebot. Download them and read.

Hi Brian,

Check out Chapter 4, Activity #4 in What's a Microcontroller (http://www.parallax.com/Portals/0/Downloads/docs/prod/edu/28123-WAM-v3.0.pdf). The example code is for the Parallax Standard Servo, but you can easily adapt it to control the Boe-Bot too.

Hope this helps!
