Cylon module for Rapiro

Cylon.js For Rapiro

Cylon.js (http://cylonjs.com) is a JavaScript framework for robotics, physical computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This module provides an adaptor for the Rapiro (http://www.rapiro.com) bipedal robot.

Want to use Ruby on robots? Check out our sister project Artoo (http://artoo.io)

Want to use the Go programming language to power your robots? Check out our sister project Gobot (http://gobot.io).

Install the module with:

$ npm install cylon cylon-rapiro

Here is an example of a simple program that makes the Rapiro walk:

var Cylon = require('cylon');
 
// Initialize the robot 
Cylon.robot({
  connections: {
    rapiro: { adaptor: 'rapiro', port: '/dev/ttyUSB0' }
  },
 
  devices: {
    rapiro: { driver: 'rapiro' }
  },
 
  workfunction(my) {
    my['doneWalking'] = false ;
 
    console.log("forward");
 
    every(1..second(), function() {
      if (my['doneWalking'] == false) {
        my.rapiro.forward();
      }
    });
    after(10..seconds(), function() {
      console.log("halt");
      my.rapiro.stop();
      my['doneWalking'] = true;
    });
 
  }
}).start();

If you are connected from a Raspberry Pi to the Rapiro board, it will appear as serial port /dev/ttyACM0. You can find out by running Gort's gort scan serial command.
