Create buttons and LEDs

  • To run the robot: unplug the charger, then press the Power button
  • Play (Tekkotsu "green" button) and Advance (Tekkotsu "yellow" button) are for user inputs
  • If the cliff detector is triggered, Tekkotsu will enter emergency stop mode

Indicators When Charger Is Plugged In

  • Pulsing orange: battery is charging
  • Steady green: battery is fully charged
  • Beeps: Tekkotsu is trying to control the robot (must disconnect charger)

Indicators When Not Charging

  • No lights: robot is turned off
  • Steady green: robot is powered up and ready to run
  • Alternating red/yellow/green: emergency stop mode (click Un-Stop in ControllerGUI to resume)
  • Steady yellow: battery running down
  • Steady red: battery almost dead
