for a note, i compile this bioloid library using avr studio 6, and looks like the code needs several minor improvements so that it can be compiled successfully...btw do you have CM-530 (ARM-cortex) or CM-700 version of this code? or can you at least give more explanation about this code so that i can help develop it for other version of bioloid module?

No, I don't have a CM-530 version (yet). I will be ordering a CM-530, though and create a version for it. Will be a lot easier because of the Standard Periphery Library for the STM32F micros...

What changes did you make to make it compile 'successfully' - other than adding the 'const' keyword in front of all the struct statements in motion.h? I will post an updated version for AS6 in the next couple of days.

All the explanations are in comments in the code and in the headers files. Even the code I have adapted from other libraries I extensively added comments to. I am not sure what else you are looking for.

After an overly long delay (never buy a house...) Version 0.6 is now finally available.

What's new:
- works with Atmel Studio 6
- static balancing using Kalman Filter and PID controller. Requires additional 2-axis accelerometer (e.g. ADXL203)
- some bug fixes

To download go to: http://code.google.com/p/bioloidccontrol/downloads/list

I will update the User Guide with instructions on how to add an accelerometer using a cheap Sparkfun breakout board in the next few days. The tuning of the Kalman/PID is not great, not my area of expertise.

I have started work on version 0.7, which will add RC-100 support and command sequences. That will probably be the last version, unless I receive specific requests.

In my next project I will convert the Bioloid Premium Kit into a 'Darwinoid' - adding CM-900 + Raspberry Pi controllers, foot sensors and pan/tilt camera head and running DARwIn-OP. Robotis have promised me a CM-900 evaluation board...

Planius. Can you make some program so that all 18 dynamixels can run from USB2Dynamixel only ? I mean Roboplus Motion files to play with USB2Dynamixel. I don't want to use cm510 or any other controller.

Mohit, there are already a number of software packages out there that allow you to control Dynamixel servos directly from a PC. Check out http://pypi.python.org/pypi/dynamixel/1.0.1 for a PYTHON based library, there is also a C# version etc. You could adapt motion.c and pose.c from BioloidCControl to work with any of those libraries to play RoboPlus motion files. In the end it depends what sort of interface you want on the PC side...

Hi Planius,
I an new to the robot community, i have just received my first bioliod premium kit with the cm-530 controller, 2 axis gyro and zigbee 110 wireless, i have built the type A configuration robot. My question is if you have or could post a zip file of your motion and task files you have created as with my kit the gyro only works when walking, i would like to have it on from the start up and in demo, autonomous and remote modes, could you please help me?
Thank you from Tony

Tony, in the default task file for the Type A robot (which you can download at http://support.robotis.com/en/product/bioloid/premiumkit/download/bioloid_premium_demo.htm) there is a function at line 840 which initializes the gyro and then there is the CALLBACK function which reads the gyro and uses the readings to set joint offsets. If you want to use the gyro at all times, you need to modify the CALLBACK function.

Alternatively, you could rewrite BioloidCControl for the CM-530 :lol:

hi Planius.
Thank you for the quick reply, i have no knowledge of what to do as i am a new user {one weak} and need a step by step explanation on how to change the callback and to what?

That depends entirely on what you want to use the gyro readings for. The gyro readings tell you how fast (degrees/second) the torso of the robot is moving in the forward-backward (x) and left-right (y) directions. That may or may not be useful information, depending on what motions you are performing.

The current CALLBACK routine only does 2 things - it detects if the robot has fallen over (slip) and it aims to compensate for swaying with applying joint offsets during walking. Start with understanding how that works and then you need to think about what other motions could benefit from using the gyro readings.

Hi, I'm new to bioloid and this forum, just finished building it up and now was reading on all the projects that exist and decided this one would be a nice start.

I have learned C programming about 15 years ago and never really used it (grew up with perl/ruby and so on), so I have to refresh quite some knowledge, so please forgive me in case I say/do something that sounds/looks stupid to a experienced C user. Feel free to correct me wherever you think it's necessary.

Anyway, my major problem was that I do not have windows nor any access to a windows system that i could install avr studio on, so I need to compile this project under Linux. I created a Makefile for that which seems to do the job, but I have not yet flashed the code onto the CM-510 yet, so I don't know if the firmware actually works.

Here the Makefile:

Code: Select all
PROJECT=BioloidCControl

CC=avr-gcc
OBJCOPY=avr-objcopy

MMCU=atmega2561

SOURCES=adc.c balance.c BioloidCControl.c button.c buzzer.c clock.c dxl_hal.c dynamixel.c led.c motion.c pid.c pose.c serial.c walk.c
OBJS=$(SOURCES:.c=.o)

CFLAGS=-Wall -g -std=gnu99 -lm -Os -DF_CPU=16000000UL -mmcu=$(MMCU) -I.


all: $(PROJECT).hex


$(PROJECT).hex: $(PROJECT).elf
        $(OBJCOPY) -O ihex $< $(PROJECT).hex

$(PROJECT).elf: $(OBJS)
        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -o $@ $^

%.o: %.c
        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c $< -o $@

clean:
        rm -f $(PROJECT).hex
        rm -f $(PROJECT).elf
        rm -f $(OBJS)


Please let me know if there is anything obviously wrong with it or what might be improved. Thanks a lot.

The system i was able to compile on was an opensuse12.1, the avr-gcc version is version 4.3.3, just in case anyone wants to know.

I have never tried this under Linux, but the makefile looks about right to me. Just to let you know, AVR Studio uses gcc 4.6.2 and applies the following compiler and link options:

Thanks for the AVR Studio build output. I finally found time to flash the .hex file, however, after powering on it did not do anything, so maybe I need to add the remaining flags. I ran into some other problem:

After nothing happened, I though I'd just reflash the original firmware, so in the end I installed Windows with RoboPlus in a virtual machine and used the Robo Manager to do so (using the included wizard). It did succeed but to my surprise the robot - once turned on and switched to demo, remote or autonomous walking mode - just moved to a completely scrambled position, then made a warning sound and released all servos, blinking their leds (the servos all move into colliding positions). The basic posture after turning it on and pushing start when the 'play' mode was selected was totally ok, just once I push 'l', 'r' or 'd' - all goes wrong.

I went though the self checklist, all seems fine, I can connect to the controller, the servos center on the correct position and the check assembly mode also works as expected.

Is there any further diagnostics guide / hints I could try in order to determine what might be wrong?
Do I have to upload the task and motions files again after a firmware reset (I built Robot model A and thought that for that the default firmware should be already configured) - I actually tried it already but am not sure if I did it right with the roboplus motion editor - afterwards the behavior was still exactly as wrong as before (it always moves to the same wrong pose).

Any hint is appreciated. In the meantime I'll update the Makefile, rebuild and reflash with the custom firmware to see if the additional compiler flags might have an influence on that working.
Thanks for the AVR Studio build output. I finally found time to flash the .hex file, however, after powering on it did not do anything, so maybe I need to add the remaining flags. I ran into some other problem:

After nothing happened, I though I'd just reflash the original firmware, so in the end I installed Windows with RoboPlus in a virtual machine and used the Robo Manager to do so (using the included wizard). It did succeed but to my surprise the robot - once turned on and switched to demo, remote or autonomous walking mode - just moved to a completely scrambled position, then made a warning sound and released all servos, blinking their leds (the servos all move into colliding positions). The basic posture after turning it on and pushing start when the 'play' mode was selected was totally ok, just once I push 'l', 'r' or 'd' - all goes wrong.

I went though the self checklist, all seems fine, I can connect to the controller, the servos center on the correct position and the check assembly mode also works as expected.
