2 How To Create An Account: visit Hover over My Account and click Register.The username provided on the registration page will be required for the control panel and for the arxterra app.
3 Getting Access To AppsTo get access to the apps you mustIn the state:Your phone modelAndroid OS versionYou are in EE400D and would like access to the Android Uno Communicator and ArxRobot AppPlease use the Gmail account associated with your google play account when sending the .When you receive a response, there will be an invitation to join the Google group ArxRobot Testers in the body of the . To accept, click the “Accept This Invitation” button. You will be taken to a confirmation page.Note: The invitation expires after so many days so make sure to accept as soon as possible.
4 Getting Access To Apps The next step is to download the apps: Method 1: Using computerMethod 2: Using Android PhoneBefore methods are shown, go back to the received as it contains two links:ArxRobot Apphttps://play.google.com/apps/testing/air.com.arxterra.arxrobotArxterra Arduino Uno USB OTG (Arduino Uno Communicator) Apphttps://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.arxterra.arduino.listenerNOTE: Arduino Mega ADK users only need the ArxRobot App
5 Getting Access To Apps This step is the same for both methods: Clicking on the links providedIn the (or on previous slide) will take you to the following pages. The page may ask you to join the test, if so, accept. If it says you are a tester then click the “Download [App name] from the Play Store” link at the bottom.NOTE: Arduino Mega ADK users only need the ArxRobot App
6 Getting Access To AppsMethod 1: Using Computer (Must still be logged in to your Gmail account)After clicking on “Download [App name] from the Play Store” on your computers browser, you should be directed to thatapps page similar to what is seen below.Click “Install” on this page.When this windows appears choose your device and click install. A new window will show: Click “OK”
7 Getting Access To Apps Method 2: Using Android Phone After clicking on “Download [App name] from the Play Store” on your phones browser, you should be directed to that apps page on the Google play store. On this page click “INSTALL”. When the App permissions window appears click “ACCEPT”. The app will then download to your phone.
8 Connect On App (Arduino Uno Communicator) When using an Arduino Uno, the Arduino Uno Communicator app must be opened first to enable communication between the Uno and Android Phone. If using the Arduino Mega ADK this step is not necessary.When opened the Arduino Uno Communicator app will simply state if a device has been found and if it’s receiving. If it says no device found, please check your cable. No other steps are needed for this application.
9 Connect On App (ArxRobot) On the initial page of the ArxRobot app hit “Connect”. Do not change any settings on this page.
10 Connect On App (ArxRobot) If using the ADK choose Microbridge.If using the Uno choose Android as HostThen hit “Done”On the second page, depending on whether an Uno or ADK is being used the Arduino Connection Protocol must be changed accordingly.
11 Connect On App (ArxRobot) At this time leave the settings on thispage as is and hit “Done”.
12 Connect On App (ArxRobot) Give your robot a name(must not match Pilot name)For “Pilot name” you MUST enter the username you created onLeave the third field as is and hit “Login”
13 Connect On App (ArxRobot) If you reach this page you havesuccessfully logged in to the app.“Custom” gives options to create custom commands. See custom commands tutorial.Clicking “Camera Info” and toggling “Monitor” gives you camera view.
14 Log In To Arxterra Control Panel visit Hover over Control Panel and click “Launch Now!”.
15 Log In To Arxterra Control Panel Click on the padlock on the upper right hand corner of the control panel to log in using the username and password you created earlier on
16 Log In To Arxterra Control Panel If all steps have been done correctly up to this point you should see an indicatoron the map with your robot name. Clicking on the indicator will show you its status and give you an option to board.In the status window click here to board your robot.Note: Make sure to have your phones GPS on to get a satellite view.
17 Log In To Arxterra Control Panel Once you have boarded your robot you should be able to see the video feed from your robot along with options to monitor and control the robot.
18 Extra Resources/Information Setting Up the Code For The Arduino ADK:Tutorial Provided by Ryan Fiske (Fall 2013)Arduino Uno requires a USB to USB OTG cable to connect to Android phone.The following link provides more information on: -How to get permission to download the apps (please use google associated with your google play account) -Where to download Arduino code for communication with Phone.
