Hi Samuelh, 

Here’s a very basic obstacle detection program that beeps when an obstacle is detected. Use this as a starting point to build your own program.

This program works for me and my Edison avoids obstacles taller than itself but when my Edison comes to a cable on the floor it does not see it as an obstacle and the wheels just spin and spin. I was thinking, if I can detect when no movement forward after say, 2 seconds, I could tell Edison that it has hit an obstacle, etc

My question is, how do I detect no movement forward after x seconds in Edware?

Hi David

You might be able to use the “Drive Strain” option in EdWare to detect when Edison stops moving.

However, if Edison’s wheels keep spinning after Edison hits the cable this may not work. Edison V2.0 can only sense if the wheels are turning, it does not have sensors which can tell it if the turning wheels are moving the Edison along

Awaiting Moderation

  • 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
