How do I make my Dobot Magician talk to a VEX Cortex?

Question:

How do I make my Dobot Magician talk to a VEX Cortex?

Answer:

It’s called handshaking and it is probably one of the more difficult tasks when working with robots and machines. We use an optical isolator so as not to damage any of the equipment with incompatible voltages, so be sure to see the website for the wiring diagrams. Watch this four minute video to see how it’s done!

Dobot to Dobot Handshake!

We did it! We made a dobot magician talk to another one and make it start. We even added a VEX switch as an input to start the first one. It is easy to do, but one word of caution:

Never connect or disconnect any wires to the dobot while it is powered on; always power it down first. Damage may result!

Ok, now on to the good stuff. If you bought your dobot through InPosition HERE, not only did you get a $100 discount, you get access to the documentation to make this happen for free! just email us! This includes worksheets and wiring diagrams.

Tony Koppers, my senior EDD student has done all of the legwork to make this happen, so special thanks to him!

How Do I Handshake Between Two VEX Cortexes?

Question:

I have two machines connected to 2 VEX Cortexes and I want to make them talk to one another using inputs and outputs. How do I do this?

Answer:

This is called handshaking, and you will need two computers running RobotC Software, and 2 VEX cortex’s  to do this.
Below is a worksheet that you can download with all of the basics, and there will be a video below shortly as well.

How do I Handshake Lynx Robot to Lynx Robot

Question:

I have two lynxmotion robots, and I want to make them talk to one another via inputs and outputs. How do I do this?

Answer:

You will need two robot arms using SSC32U controllers, a few 4N25 optical isolators a few resistors, FlowArm software and some wires and a breadboard and you are ready to go!
Below is a worksheet that you can download with all of the basics, and there will be a video below shortly as well.
