• ROBOTC for Arduino BETA release, trying it with the BOE Shield-Bot

    Today I downloaded this public BETA release (120-day free trial!) to see how it works with the BOE Shield-Bot. I was surprised to find our blue Boe-Bot cousin right on the About screen!



    As a relative newbie to the Arduino and to C, I found the software interface to be quite nice. The download includes several example programs, and I started by experimenting with continuous rotation servos. I soon saw that the default examples for the Uno and Duemilanove are using digital pins 9 and 10, while the BOE Shield-Bot construction directions use pins 13 and 12. Fortunately, with just a little poking around in the software I quickly figured out how to adjust both the servo connections and the software; I've posted instructions here. My Shield-Bot was following lists of navigation instructions within a few minutes.

    If anyone test-drives ROBOTC for Arduino BETA with their BOE Shield-Bot, let us know how it goes!

    I was wondering if anyone would want to use a version of the P1 core translated from Verilog to System Verilog.
