OWI Edge robot arm control via USB

This project provides APIs to control an OWI Edge robot arm using C or Python.

If you need to stop the robot arm right away, just unplug the USB cable from your computer.

Python Quickstart

Use setup.py to build and install the library:

python setup.py install

Then try it out!

$ python
>>> import owi
>>> owi.init()
>>> owi.light_on()
>>> owi.light_off()
>>> owi.light_toggle()
>>> owi.light_toggle()
>>> owi.base_left(1.5)
>>> owi.base_left(0.5)
>>> owi.base_right(2)
>>> owi.shutdown()

owi command line program

Build the tool via make. You'll need libusb-1.0 and the headers installed for this to work. On Ubuntu you can get this installed via

sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev

Use ./owi to run the program.

There are three keys per motor: forward/stop/reverse.

 m | m | m | m |   m5
 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | (base)
---+---+---+---+-----------
 e | r | t | y | i o p
 d | f | g | h |   l     <- light on/off
 c | v | b | n |

Writing your own C code

See libowi.h for the available functions.
