Raspberry myCobot

Begin your myCobot

Firstly, you need to connect power supply, display, keyboard and mouse as shown in the following image, then initiate myCobot by the red switch.

Notes: Japanese users are recommended to use KSY's UNI345-1238.

The use of python

Start quickly

We've pre-loaded the python API package in the Raspberry Pi version of myCobot pymycobot, just use it in your code.

You can create a python file at any position, for example: light_led.py, then write the following code in the file:

from pymycobot.mycobot import MyCobot
from pymycobot import PI_PORT, PI_BAUD

mc = MyCobot(PI_PORT, PI_BAUD)
mc.set_color(255, 0, 0)

After saving, run it. You'll see the light board on top of myCobot lit in red.

Update the library

If our library is updated, it can also be easily synchronized on Raspberry Pi.

python2 update:

[sudo] pip install pymycobot --upgrade

python3 update:

[sudo] pip3 install pymycobot --upgrade
