It’s finally here, a little overdue, but I had a really good excuse, I was at a robotics event on Saturday and I was fixing some last minute bugs!  Better to be late than buggy, right?  That’s not saying there are no bugs in this release, of course.

IMPORTANT NOTICE(S)!

  • The NXT2WIFI driver is a bit funky at the moment.  I based it on some pre-production hardware but there have been some significant changes to both the hardware and firmware since then.  I am awaiting the arrival of this new production hardware, which should be here any day now.  Until then, proceed with caution.
  • Also, like I mentioned before, the Driver Suite will NOT compile with anything less than ROBOTC 3.51.  If you haven’t updated yet, I suggest you do so now. Just pop over to here and install.

What’s new?

  • Changed my email address in all the files to a botbench.com one
  • Added a driver for the HiTechnic Force Sensor + example programs
  • Added a driver for the Mindsensors LigthSensorArray + example programs (one of which is a calibration program)
  • Modified Mindsensors IMU driver.  You can now only retrieve all 3 axes at once, this is a limitation of the sensor.  The ability to retrieve the magnetic fields is now also possible.
  • Fixed a bug in the HiTechnic SuperPro Experiment 2 program where not all digital IOs were set to output.
  • Implemented a new function in the Firgelli Linear Actuator driver, you can now issue a STOP, added 3rd test program to demonstrate how to use it.  I have no idea why I never did that before.

Coming soon

  • A proper driver for the NXT2WIFI.
  • A driver for a really cool new mystery sensor, that’s coming out Real Soon Now ™.
