Development Environment Construction

1 Using Environment

The myCobot 280 Arduino is developed and used based on PC and development board. There is no built-in system inside the robotic arm, so it is necessary to connect the robotic arm with PC and development board during use. Remember to prepare a PC and development board.

2 Development Environment

Here are the development environments supported by myCobot 280 Arduino. Read to download and install.

2.1 Arduino MKR WiFi 1010 and Arduino MEGA2560

  • 2.1.3 Development based on Arduino. Arduino is an easy-to-use, open-source electronic prototyping platform that includes hardware (various Arduino-compliant development boards) and software (Arduino IDE and related development kits). The hardware part (or development board) consists of a microcontroller (MCU), flash memory (Flash), and a set of general-purpose input/output interfaces (GPIO), etc. It can be understood as a microcomputer motherboard. The software part is mainly composed of Arduino IDE on the PC side, related board support packages (BSP) and rich third-party function libraries. Users can use Arduino IDE to easily download the BSP related to the development board and the required function library to write program. Refer to simple use of Arduino for more information. arduino
  • 2.1.4 Development based on ROS. ROS is open-source and is a post operating system, or secondary operating system, used for robot control. With the use of ROS, the simulation control of the manipulator can be realized in the virtual environment. The robotic arm can be visualized through the rviz platform, and operate the robotic arm in a variety of ways. It can also be used to plan and execute the robotic arm's action path through to freely control the robotic arm. After installing the ROS development environment , refer to use cases and use of moveit for more information.

3 Updating Firmware

The basic firmware of myCobot 280 Arduino need to be updated via myStudio. MyCobot 280 Arduino has built-in myStudio, which can be used directly.
