How To Control AX12-A Dynamixel Using V-REP Simulation

Post by Azizi » 17 Apr 2014, 16:54

Hello. Since I am new (actually since Monday) to VREP software. My question is:
1) What is the baudrate to control Dynamixel? Do I need to lower it down and if yes, how?
2) How can I send serial data packet from laptop to dynamixel?
3) How to do script by this case: I move dynamixel, shows on simulation, or vice versa.

Thank in advance.

Hi

1) the baudrate is up to you. You can set the dynamixel to the baudrate you wish using a software like this one
2) you need a usd-ttl device to do 1) and in order to let V-REP communicate with the servo
3) you need to implement the protocol of communication to communicate with the dynamixel to form the packets to send and recieve/extract responces. The corresponding commands to use the serial port are these one

The implementation of the protocole in a plug-in is on the to do list but not with a high priority.

Cheers

just a heads up;

3d models for these servos are at: http://www.robotis.com/xe/download_en/26324

and i've had nice conversation from these to stl using this online utility; http://www.3dtransform.com/index.php

Should I use Threaded or Non-threaded script then?

Or maybe you could show me the script? Please...I really need to finish my assignment here.......:)
