If you have two or more Lego Mindstorms EV3’s in daisy chain mode, it is not possible to use a Wifi connection with the EV3 as well. For our project, we need this functionality. Two embedded software engineers in our team are now updating the firmware to make this work. But are we going to be in time….? From a project management perspective, it is always wise to have a fallback scenario. But is there one….?
The Sioux.NET on Track team has made new plans for the layout that will be demonstrated at Lego World Utrecht in 2016. In this article, you’ll find a summary of these plans. Stay tuned this year for some nice buildings and of course, lots of programming!
I’ve uploaded a video to Youtube with an example of the motor protocol. It explains how the information is passed from the PC to the “Buffer Control” brick and then – using the Motor Protocol – is passed to the daisy-chained-EV3’s.
In the post of November 11, 2013 (yes, that is quite some time ago) I announced the beta release of the application NXT to EV3 Connection Hub. This application makes it possible to use the NXT as remote control for the EV3.
The PC application will connect to the NXT and EV3 bricks by Bluetooth (for the EV3, we are investigating if we can write a block for sending messages over a WiFi connection, but that isn’t easy).
