How to start with Intel Edison

or how to connect RoboCORE with RoboCORE Platform using Intel Edison module.

Intel Edison comes with preinstalled system which is modified to work with RoboCORE. If you purchased RoboCORE without Intel Edison and you want to use your own Edison module, please visit Download Linux image to Edison module page.

First steps

  • At first, please create your account on RoboCORE Platform (if you don't have it yet).
  • You need the Intel Edison module physically installed in RoboCORE. The RoboCORE always come without it, therefore you need to install it yourself. The installation of Edison module is described on the Assembling of Intel Edison module page.
  • Then you need to configure Intel® Edison module to connect it to your Wi-Fi. You can use both Android device or iPhone/iPad device to do it:

Please remember that you cannot use both Android device and Edison module to connect with the RoboCORE Platform.

Configuration with Android phone/tablet

  1. Install RoboCORE app on your smartphone or tablet. You can find the “RoboCORE” application at the Google Play. You will need it to configure the Edison module to communicate with your Wi-Fi network.
  2. Turn RoboCORE on.
  3. Connect your Android device to the 'UE' port in RoboCORE (the name comes from 'USB Edison').
  4. The application should show the screen shown on the picture. Pay attention to the 'Status' section on the screen.
  5. Choose the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. Of course, the application will ask you for the password.
  6. The status should change to 'connected, ip: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX'.
  7. After connecting, the pop-up window should show you the registration code. Visit https://cloud.husarion.com/, click “Add new device”, then “I have registration code” and write this code in the second field. For the robot (device) name, type anything you want.

Remark: Depends on your phone/tablet model, you may have to allow application using the USB device (the pop-up question will show on the screen if needed).

Configuration with iOS phone/tablet

  1. Find the RoboCORE app at the Apple AppStore and install.
  2. Connect your RoboCORE to the power supply and then press the POWER button to start RoboCORE.
  3. Turn on Internet connection and Bluetooth in your smartphone.
  4. Open RoboCORE app on iPhone/iPad and wait. RoboCORE device should be visible soon. Just select this.
  5. In iOS RoboCORE app you can see available WiFi networks, for RoboCORE (with Edison inside). Select one of the available Wi-Fi network and enter password.
  6. After a while you will see on iPhone/iPad screen: “navigate to platform.robocore.io/addbot on your computer and enter this code XXXXXX ”. This code will be used in the next step.
  7. Go to https://cloud.husarion.com/ and log in.
