I want to walk, and keep walking. (No pause)

Hi all.
I haven't been able to get to my Robobuilder recently due to many of life's other "distractions".

However, one thing that I guess isn't clear to me ... how do I remote control it to make it walk and keep walking until I either press a button or release a button. Seems for everything I've done it's walk, stop, press the button, walk, stop, etc. Even if I take the forward walk motion and copy it a bunch of times and play it, I still need to keep telling it to go again.

Is there a way that I'm just not seeing or thinking about? I see videos of other humanoids and they can be made to walk (or run) turn, etc with a remote and there's no apparent pause.

Ideas?

Thanks a bunch!

basically, firmware motion should be changed,

I haven't tried yet. So I am not sure.
but my idea is
1) Download the "super speed walking" from RB website.
2) Control RB by bluetooth controller, NOT by IR remote.

I will also think it over this issue~ and will let you know the solution

I can see now RB can walk, walk, no pause in firmware ver2.30
if you control by PC or Bluetooth :D

Know How? I stop by RB website one time a day

How Use them? Use the Firmware Upgrade Tool

Their documentation is rather terse :)

It would be useful to know the extensions to the RBC serial protocol to access these functions - they keep referring to a "user guide" but then don't link to an updated version. But if any one finds out please tell so I can update the .NET library to enable continuous movement.

This is quite possible to do in L# with RobobuilderLib, either by directly controlling the servos or by uploading new walk motions and then calling them in a loop. The current motion has a pause at the start and end - so by editing that to remove the pause might work - although keeping bot stable will be the problem.

Sounds like we should have a competition for the robobuilder 10m dash !
