Lesson 1 Worksheet 1.4 – Downloading a test program

Open the test program. File name: Test Program.edw (Windows location: C:\Program Files\EdWare\My Programs)


Test program

This is what a program looks like. Edison looks at each icon one at a time and does what the icon says. The arrows show the direction that Edison reads the icons. In this program there is a loop, so the program loops around forever or until the batteries go flat.

To download the test program connect the EdComm cable to the headphone socket on the computer or tablet and turn up the volume to full. Plug the other end of the EdComm cable into Edison as shown.


To download the test program follow these steps:

  1. Press Edison’s record (round) button once
  2. In EdWare press the ‘Program Edison’ button and then ‘Start Download’
  3. Press Edison’s play (triangle) button to start the program


What did the robot do when you pressed the play button?



Can you relate these actions to the icons in the program? Please describe your thoughts.



How did the program get from the computer to the robot?

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
