Summer is officially over, time for some robotics!

The General finally got his head assembled over the summer! I made an extra bracket that connects the head to the body so I can continue using the stand I made.

With all 20 servos connected, I tried running the robot motion editor,┬ábut for some reason the left shoulder servo tried to move outside its limit – causing the NUC to shutdown. After some troubleshooting with the Dynamixel Wizard, I found out I had set the CCW_Angle_Limit to 0. After changing it to 3200, I can successfully activate (or play) the default standing pose!

I tried the ps3_demo, but I can’t get it to work – always return with “Robot detected in sitting position” oh well, next time!
