PIC Robotics: A Beginner's Guide to Robotics Projects Using the PIC Micro

By John Iovine

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.
