What is the EdComm cable?
The EdComm cable is the special cable used to download programs to Edison V1 and V2 robots from any of the Edison robotics programming languages. The EdComm cable is how you connect your Edison V1 or V2 robot to a computer or tablet. The EdComm cable is not required for the current version of the Edison robot (Edison V3).
To connect Edison to a computer or tablet, plug the audio jack end of the EdComm cable into the headphone socket on your programming device. The other end of the EdComm cable connects to the underside of your Edison robot, near the power switch.
Setting up the EdComm cable is as simple as attaching the cable to your Edison and programming device. The EdComm cable does not require any driver software to be installed and is compatible with any device that has a headphone jack. This allows Edison to be programmed from devices that don’t have USB ports, such as iPads.
