Yahboom Omibox Robot Kit Tutorial 2.Introduction of Graphical programming
How to install Helloblock
1.Double-click the Helloblock V1.0.6.exe that we provided to start the installation.
2.Select the installation path, we need to choose the default installation path, no additional modifications,
just click 【Next】.
3. By default, create a shortcut on the desktop, we just need to click 【Next】.
5. Wait patiently for the installation progress bar to scroll.
How to use Helloblock
1.Double-click the shortcut on the desktop to enter the interface as shown below.
2.Click 【Try It】to enter programming interface, as shown below.
3.The interface shown below is Helloblock graphical programming interface.
4. Click on the place shown on the left below to add the expansion pack for the OmiBox robot.
5. After the addition is completed, OmiBox building block expansion package will be added on the left side of the programming interface, as shown in the following figure.
6.We can drag the building block to the programming area and start writing the program, as shown below.
7.We can give a name to the program we wrote in the location shown below. (for example: Red_light)
8.After the program is written, click on the blue icon in the upper right corner of the programming interface to switch to 【Code Mode】, as shown below.
9.Connect the OMIBOX robot to the computer with a USB cable.
!!!Note:you must turn on the power switch of the OmiBox robot.
10.Then, open the computer device manager and you will recognize the corresponding CH340 port, as shown below:
Note: The port number of each computer will be different, as long as it recognizes that CH340 is the port we need.
Before this step, please refer to the "Installation of CH340 Driver" file to complete the installation of the CH340 driver. Otherwise, the port will not be recognized.
11.We need to go back to the programming interface, select the CH340 port number identified in the previous step in the upper right corner (here is COM9), then click the up arrow to start compiling and uploading the program.
12.Uploading the program takes some time. When the words "Done compiling Done uploading" appear in the lower right corner of the programming interface, as shown in the following figure, the program has been uploaded.
!!!Note:During the upload process, you must turn on the power switch of the OmiBox robot during
13.After the program upload is complete, we can see the experimental phenomenon: the 0th light of the OmiBox robot lights up red, as shown in the figure below.
14.In the 【Code Mode】 interface, we can click on the place as shown below to open the serial port. We can change the language.
15.The serial port number needs to be the same as our programming interface. The default baud rate is 115200.
16.In the [Code Mode] interface, we can click on the place shown below to open the Arduino IDE programming interface.
