SimpleBot Vs NodeBot

Post by DaveMark » Mon Jan 04, 2016 10:43 pm

So I gather a SimpleBot assembled with chassis is not a NodeBot unless you use a PiLeven involved with Linux and code, true/false?

Hi Dave,

That's right, the "Node" in NodeBots refers to the "node.js" JavaScript environment that runs on top of a computer running Linux (or OS X or Windows).

One way to make SimpleBot into a NodeBot is to run node on a Raspberry Pi with a PiLeven and the shield, or alternatively you can use an Eleven or a similar board and connect them via a USB cable.

Thanks, but what different level of added functionally do I get going the NodeBot way?

Hi David,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. There are some instructions for using the SimpleBotShield with node.js here:
