Raspberry Pi + OWI Robotic Arm Edge USB protocol (and sample code) #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Window-319

notbrainsurgery: OWI Robotic Arm Edge USB protocol (and sampe code).

OWI Robotic Arm Edge – You can use USB interface module to connect it to PC. Unfortunately official software works only under Windows and do not provide API. I have been able to reverse engineer their USB protocol and write sample code which allows to control the arm from Mac and Linux.

This is USB device with vendor id 0x1267 and product id 0. The device is controlled by 3 byte commands sent via USB control transfers. Command format is byte0, byte1, byte2. Each byte controls a group of arm features. All motors could be controlled independently. Most commands start action which is continued until next action is signalled. Byte ’00’ universally used as stop action.


Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.
