Hi all,

I would like to do something like this:

DIM X AS BYTE
DIM Y AS BYTE
DIM Z AS BYTE

MOVE G6A, x, y, z, , , ,


but this code don't compile. There is any other way to do this?

As far as I know putting a variable into a move statement will not work.

It is not possible to use variables in the MOVE command. This is a limitation in the C3024 firmware and is reflected in the PC based Robobasic compiler.

The SERVO comand will take variables, but does not have the advantage of PTP etc.

Could you describe your objective in more detail, so we might find a work around ?

I want my robonova go upstairs measuring the height of the step with a IR sensor. With this measurement it must know how high is the step and it will run the routine according to that distance. :wink:

Yes, this is my last solution, but I would like to try it with a customize.

Try to use the SERVO command if you are close to your goal. Using Robobasic 2.7 should gve you some processing speed inpovement.

It is possible to use POKE to access the MOVE registers, but POKE is broken on the standard software release. We can fix this, but the controller has to be reflashed !

Try SERVO, and let us know if you are still stuck.

Only one competitor succesfully competed and completed stair climbing at Robogames 2009, so be inspired to compete and complete ! Yes it was Gorts's RoboNova !

Thanks i-bot, I can customize it using SERVO one by one.
