Gobot

Gobot (http://gobot.io/) is a framework using the Go programming language (http://golang.org/) for robotics, physical computing, and the Internet of Things.

It provides a simple, yet powerful way to create solutions that incorporate multiple, different hardware devices at the same time.

Getting Started

Get the Gobot source with: go get -d -u github.com/potix/gobot/...

Examples

Gobot with Arduino

package main

import (
	"time"

	"github.com/potix/gobot"
	"github.com/potix/gobot/platforms/firmata"
	"github.com/potix/gobot/platforms/gpio"
)

func main() {
	gbot := gobot.NewGobot()

	firmataAdaptor := firmata.NewFirmataAdaptor("arduino", "/dev/ttyACM0")
	led := gpio.NewLedDriver(firmataAdaptor, "led", "13")

	work := func() {
		gobot.Every(1*time.Second, func() {
			led.Toggle()
		})
	}

	robot := gobot.NewRobot("bot",
		[]gobot.Connection{firmataAdaptor},
		[]gobot.Device{led},
		work,
	)

	gbot.AddRobot(robot)

	gbot.Start()
}

Gobot with Sphero

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"time"

	"github.com/potix/gobot"
	"github.com/potix/gobot/platforms/sphero"
)

func main() {
	gbot := gobot.NewGobot()

	adaptor := sphero.NewSpheroAdaptor("sphero", "/dev/rfcomm0")
	driver := sphero.NewSpheroDriver(adaptor, "sphero")

	work := func() {
		gobot.Every(3*time.Second, func() {
			driver.Roll(30, uint16(gobot.Rand(360)))
		})
	}

	robot := gobot.NewRobot("sphero",
		[]gobot.Connection{adaptor},
		[]gobot.Device{driver},
		work,
	)

	gbot.AddRobot(robot)

	gbot.Start()
}

Hardware Support

Gobot has a extensible system for connecting to hardware devices. The following robotics and physical computing platforms are currently supported:

Support for many devices that use General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) have a shared set of drivers provided using the gobot/platforms/gpio package:

  • GPIO <=> Drivers
    • Analog Sensor
    • Button
    • Direct Pin
    • Digital Sensor
    • Direct Pin
    • Grove Button
    • Grove Buzzer
    • Grove LED
    • Grove Light Sensor
    • Grove Piezo Vibration Sensor
    • Grove Relay
    • Grove Rotary Dial
    • Grove Sound Sensor
    • Grove Touch Sensor
    • LED
    • Makey Button
    • Motor
    • Servo

Support for devices that use Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) have a shared set of drivers provided using the gobot/platforms/i2c package:

  • I2C <=> Drivers
    • BlinkM
    • Grove Digital Accelerometer
    • Grove RGB LCD
    • HMC6352 Compass
    • JHD1313M1 RGB LCD Display
    • LIDAR-Lite
    • MCP23017 Port Expander
    • MMA7660 3-Axis Accelerometer
    • MPL115A2 Barometer
    • MPU6050 Accelerometer/Gyroscope
    • Wii Nunchuck Controller

More platforms and drivers are coming soon...

API:

Gobot includes a RESTful API to query the status of any robot running within a group, including the connection and device status, and execute device commands.

To activate the API, require the github.com/potix/gobot/api package and instantiate the API like this:

  gbot := gobot.NewGobot()
  api.NewAPI(gbot).Start()

You can also specify the api host and port, and turn on authentication:

  gbot := gobot.NewGobot()
  server := api.NewAPI(gbot)
  server.Port = "4000"
  server.AddHandler(api.BasicAuth("gort", "klatuu"))
  server.Start()

You may access the robeaux React.js interface with Gobot by navigating to http://localhost:3000/index.html.
