Can you give us an example of the event of “Drive strained”?

What is all about exactly?

Thank you.

The ‘drive strained’ block from the Event category can be used to trigger a subroutine if Edison’s motors stop moving while Edison is carrying out drive commands. This means that whenever the Edison is driving along and someone or something stops the wheels with force it will trigger. 

Here is a share code for a program I wrote for you:

I suggest running this program while holding the Edison by its body. The Edisons motors will be running in reverse for 320 Seconds. While the Edison is running in reverse, try and stop the wheels by grabbing onto them. The Edison will detect that the motors are under strain. The Edison will start to beep.

I hope this helps you.

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.
