Re: Code - Barrier detect

I'm pretty sure why your random selection isn't working. Here's your code: if (rndm = 0){ motors(-60,60); playStartChirp(); } if (rndm = 1){ motors(60,-60); } I haven't tested the outcome, but I made sure it compiled. But remember that in C, the "=" is an assignment operator, not a compari...

Re: Wink Issue.

This sounds just like the problem I had. It could be one of several items, and I posted my own experience on a couple other threads. My issues, after getting it all hooked up right, were two simple points: 1) In IDE, select Board->Adruino FIO 2) Before pushing "upload", make sure the Wink ...

Re: Problem with my Wink

Caveat - I'm new to Arduino, but I've been playing with Wink for the last couple of days. I believe your issue is that you are trying to run Ringo preloaded demo on the Wink. I believe there is a small confusion being caused because Wink is new and the current usage instructions refer alot to common...

Wink Programming Question: Function Reference Manual

Now that I'm up and coding for Wink, I have a very basic question. Each of the programming exercises introduces new functions. I'm looking for a more complete reference manual of all available functions and operations.

Where can I find the Language Reference Manual for Wink (or Ringo)?

There were enough questions that I thought I'd post a new thread with my findings, to maybe save people some time. Lo...
