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
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.
[sudo] pip install pymycobot --upgrade
[sudo] pip3 install pymycobot --upgrade
In addition to the above content, we provide more examples to help users use the python API.

cd ~/ros_catkin_ws source devel/setup.bash
- Go to myCobotROS's redeme, follow
