This YouTube video shows a robot built using V5 and “classic” EDR parts, and programmed with Robot Mesh Studio for V5, release 1.0. This particular program was written in Blockly, but we have also written the same program in both Python and C++. Watch for more news on Robot Mesh Studio later this week.
The vision sensor seems really responsive. We’ve written some test programs for VCS that track and collect the balls with an intake roller. We are still having issues getting it to “remember” signatures at the moment but on the whole, I a confident that it is going to be really useful in competition.
We saw similar problems with the vision sensor “forgetting” signatures, but with the latest firmware release, it seems to have either gone away or gotten better. Our classroom this week has six teams of teachers building robots and programming with Robot Mesh Studio and we haven’t had any disappearing signatures.
