Here is every thing the robotics hobbyist must harness the ability of the PICMicro MCU!
In this heavily-illustrated source, writer John Iovine presents plans and whole components lists for eleven easy-to-build robots every one with a PICMicro "brain.” The expertly written insurance of the PIC uncomplicated computing device makes programming a snap -- and many fun.

If they function properly, I’m finished; if not, I begin rewrit ing the program or redesigning the electronics. CodeDesigner 25 Software Installation The CodeDesigner software program quite a bit as so much standard Windows software program does. Load the software on your computer’s hard drive according to the instructions given with the software. When CodeDesigner installs, it creates a subdirectory in the Program Files listing. It locations a CodeDesigner shortcut on the begin, application menu in home windows. Setting CodeDesigner Options In order for CodeDesigner to compile code and program the resulting code into PIC microcontrollers, we want to configure the default destinations the place CodeDesigner looks for its support programs. We set up the default locations by entering the software paths where CodeDesigner stores programs, looks for the PicBasic compiler and where to find the EPIC program. Start the CodeDesigner software (see Fig. four. 1); the evaluation copy opens with this version of the window. The next window is the standard opening screen to the CodeDesigner software (see Fig. four. 2). To begin setting the options, click on the Compile menu option and then on Compiler Options (see Fig. four. 3). Figure 4. 1 CodeDesigner Lite version startup screen. 26 Chapter Four Figure 4. 2 Program written in CodeDesigner ready for compiling and programming. Figure 4. three Error created when Windows cannot identify EPIC Programmer attached to print er port. CodeDesigner 27 Figure 4. four Schematic for wink application. The Compiler Options window opens (see Fig. four. 4). In the top text field, use the pulldown menu to select which compiler you are using, the PicBasic Pro or PicBasic. In Fig. four. 4 the PicBasic Pro compiler is chosen. In the moment textual content box, you pick out the compiler’s pathname. The compiler path and name (pbpw. exe) is chosen for the PicBasic Pro compiler, in the sub directory of C:\PBP. In the third text field we choose where the CodeDesigner software looks to load and keep our resource code records. Hit the Browse button subsequent to the textual content box. This opens a browser window (see Fig. four. 5); select the Applics subdirec tory on the hard drive and click on OK. The “Default resource Code listing” textual content box now comprises the direction “C:\Applics” subdirectory (see Fig. four. 6). click on the okay button to shut the Compiler Options window . Now we want to set the Programmer techniques. click on on the Programmer, Programmer strategies on the best menu (see Fig. four. 7). This opens the Programmer Options window (see Fig. four. 8). Click on the Browse button next to the Programmer Pathname textual content box. A browser window opens; choose the epicwin. exe program in the EPIC subdirectory on your computer’s hard dri ve (see Fig. four. 9). click on Open, and this brings you again to the Programmer concepts window. The new course you decide on may still be in the Programmer Pathname text field (see Fig. four. 10). Click OK to set this option. Figure 4. five Complete circuit built on solderless breadboard.
