I am using a Mac (more details are available here https://developer.anki.com/vector/docs/install-macos.html) but there are instructions for Windows and Linux.
- You need the Vector to have been set-up previous on a tablet, and an account set-up on the Anki Cloud.
- Install Homebrew - available here https://brew.sh/
- Using Homebrew to install Python3
The tutorials have a number of useful Python examples. With them, as the basis the code below, Vector moves off the charger and says "Hello Scott" - not earth-shattering but fun.
Drive off the charger
Make Vector say 'Hello Scott' in this simple Vector SDK example program.
args = anki_vector.util.parse_command_args()
with anki_vector.Robot(args.serial) as robot:
print("Say 'Hello Scott'...")
if __name__ == "__main__":
I am going to enjoy playing with this a bit more.
