Hello, 

I am using the Edison Robots with my middle school class and we are using the barcodes to drive our robots. 2 groups worked, but the other 5 groups are having this issue:

When the robot drives over the "IR learn drive forward" barcode and click a button on the remote it works. THEN when the robot drives over the "IR learn drive backward" barcode and click a button on the remote, ALL programmed buttons on the remote make the robot go backwards. The last barcode that is scanned seems to be overwriting any prior code. 

Please help! 

Thank you!

Hi Courtney,

It seems like maybe the remote you are using is not compatible with the Edison robots.

Edison is compatible with around 75% of TV and DVD remote controls. If one of your remotes doesn’t happen to work with Edison, try a different remote, preferably a different brand. Alternatively, you can purchase an inexpensive ‘universal remote’ and set it to be a Sony DVD remote control, which works well with the robots.

Hi Isaac, 

I was using the Universal Remotes and also a combination of 7 other remotes and I was having the same trouble with all the remotes. We swapped out robots and remotes but kept running into the same issue. Another problem we ran into was the signals getting crossed. When one group would press the forward button, another robot would pick up the signal and go forward. Anything I should be doing to correct this? 

Thanks, 

Courtney

Hi Courtney,

The issue of the last barcode taking control of all buttons seems a bit odd. I might suggest for now just testing out the batteries in all your remotes and the Edisons. Low battery can often cause minor anomalies to happen.

Regarding a way to stop other groups from taking control of some else Edison. I suggest that you get groups to write down what they are making each button do. For example, a few groups can use the arrow buttons. While other groups can use different sets of the numbered buttons.

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.
