I have installed sphero_ros on my laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and I've made it as far as being able to issue single rostopic commands to the Sphero via the Terminal. However, I would like to use the Python API instead, only I can't find any documentation on where I would even start to accomplish this. In essence, I'm looking for a step-by-step guide or a "Hello World" script of some sort. Can anyone help me?
Your help is much appreciated.
#!/usr/bin/python from sphero_driver import sphero_driver import time sphero = sphero_driver.Sphero() while True: try: sphero.connect() break except: print '\nTrying to connect again!' pass time.sleep(2) sphero.set_rgb_led(255, 0, 0, 0, False) time.sleep(1) sphero.set_rgb_led(0, 255, 0, 0, False) time.sleep(1) sphero.set_rgb_led(0, 0, 255, 0, False) time.sleep(1)
If you want to connect to a specific Sphero, use
sphero = sphero_driver.Sphero('Sphero','01:23:45:67:89:AB')
instead, where the second argument is your Sphero's address.
