Revolution Roli

Building Roli Rover

Introduction

EZ-Robot Revolution Software Apps include assembly instructions for your robot. When you load a project, the EZ-Builder software will download the required EZ-Bits and ask if you would like to view the assembly instructions. In this lesson, we will explain how to build your Revolution Roli Rover Robot.



Connecting Camera

The EZ-Robot Camera connects to the EZ-B v4 with a 6 pin cable. Notches on the male connector match the EZ-B's female connector. This prevents the plug from connecting incorrectly. The camera connection is unique, making it easy to identify where to connect. It is impossible to connect the camera cable to the wrong connector, as it only fits in the matching plug.



Connecting Servos & I/O

Much like your home theater speakers, the cables of the EZ-B and peripherals are color coded. The BLACK cable on the peripheral (i.e. servo) will connect to match the BLACK side of the EZ-B connector.


Servo Orientation

*Note: Keep a close eye on the EZ-Bit's physical features so you can identify the orientation. In this example, notice the direction of the servo with recognizable features of the real physical EZ-Bit in your hand. If you connect an EZ-Bit backward, your robot will behave funny and not work as expected - but might be worth the laugh!
