DOWNLOADING THE FIRMWARE

V.Ryan 2005

 

The 'Firmware' is the software that the RCX buggy needs to operate. Without it programmes written on RoboLab cannot be transferred or opeated by the RCX buggy. Consequently, the Firmware must be download  from the computer to the RCX, via the IR Transmitter. The menu used to download the Firmware is shown below. NOTE - Every time batteries are removed from the RCX or they become rundown, the Firmware must be downloaded again, before the RCX will operate.

 

 

Ensure the RCX is on and facing the IR transmitter and download FIRMWARE.
   

   

Next select TEST RCX COMMUNICATION. If everything is connected correctly the RCX should play a short tune.
