I bought my son the mBot Ranger for Christmas with the intent of introducing him to coding, I’ve programmed Arduino boards before for other purposes and felt the Ranger would give him a good set of standard inputs and outputs.
Built the robot and all is working as expected with the mobile App/Bluetooth.
I downloaded mBlock and all good with that too…
I’ve installed Arduino, USB driver, MakeBlockDrive library, selected Arduino/Genuino Mega or Mega 2560 as the board.
All the examples compile and appear to upload as expected (communications LEDs flash), however nothing actually does anything (initial trials with LED and audio outputs). I tried uploading Firmware for Auriga, which works fine!
I’ve replaced the header definition in the examples with #include <MeAuriga.h> as described in the readme, I’ve had a look for hints in the range resources, but no joy. I’ve googled, I’ve searched and feel I’m almost there, but frustratedly not got the final piece of the puzzle.
When I upload the code, the TX and RX LEDs flash, the RX LED goes out and the TX LED stays on.
Can someone please give me some ideas as to how to proceed? I presumably missing something fairly obvious!
