Hi,

When adding a “wait until an obstacle” block, the start event of type message disappear from the UI. Is it a bug? Can you fix it? It doesn’t seem to be related to the Blocks being a beginners language….

We are trying to create a “leading” robot that his peers imitate his movements…

Thanks.

Hi

This is not a bug, it’s done intentionally.

Edison uses the same sensor to detect obstacles and receive messages.

While Edison is looking for obstacles, Edison cannot receive messages.

The start event message blocks ask Edison to try and receive messages the entire time the program is running, so if Edison starts trying to find an obstacle this disrupts Edison trying to receive messages causing errors.

When a block is placed down EdBlocks automatically removes blocks from the toolbar that would cause errors when used in the same program.

This way it is impossible for a beginner to encounter this type of error

OK. Can you please publish a document detailing these type of limitations?

Thanks.

Hi

There are just two limitations:

– Edison only has one IR sensor, so cannot receive messages/ir codes while detecting obstacles
– Edison cannot detect claps while driving (the motors make too much noise)

  • Keep up with Edison

Heads up

The Australian Federal Parliament has passed a law that extends goods and services tax (GST) to low value imports of physical goods imported by consumers from 1 July 2018.

This means that all customers purchasing Edison robots and accessories with an Australian shipping address must now pay GST. The GST will be automatically added to your purchase and show as a line item on your invoice.

We've detected that you are in Australia, so we wanted to let you know that we have changed your settings to view our Australian site, which displays GST inclusive pricing.

OK got it!    Take me to the GLOBAL SITE instead
