271  Community / Workshops and Events / Austin Robotic Network Demo Day/Line Following Event on: February 07, 2013, 04:44:51 pm
Austin Robotic Network is a group dedicated to creating free & low-cost robotic opportunities in the Austin area.

We will be hosting a free event:
 
ARN Demo Day/Line Following Event
 
At the  Ruiz Library
1600 Grove Blvd.,  Austin
http://library.austintexas.gov/locations/Ruiz%20Branch
 
On  Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013
Set-up Demonstrations           12:30-1:00
Public Viewing                         1:00-4:00
Line Following                          3:00-4:00
 
 
Demonstrations can be any LEGO construction, any robotic project, or any technology-related project.  All ages & skill levels are invited to participate, teams or individuals.    Demonstrations will be given table space or floor space (as requested).     One demonstration will feature the basics  of the Arduino microcontroller hardware and programming environment, presented by a member of the ARN team.    We expect the Austin Robot Group to bring  robots and demonstrate CREATE.     We will also give out information about our Summer Sumobot competition & summer workshops learn to build them.     This is a community event to help those interested get involved in robotics.
 
The Line Following is divided into two events:    LEGO only – Two categories:    12 & under, and  13 & over
                                                                             Open Source – all ages, any platform
 
Rules for the Line Following events can be found at:     http://austin-robotics-network.net/ .
 
To register for Demonstration space or to enter the Line Following Competition send an email to moonlit-hunt at earthlink.net with *registration* in the subject line by Feb. 10, 2013.     Please provide a simple description of your demonstration and what kind of space you need, or which category for the Line Following Competition you will compete in.   
 
Please join us a participant or guest!   For more information about our events subscribe to ARN at Austin-Robotics-Network-subscribe at yahoogroups.com or contact Diana Heinig : moonlit-hunt at earthlink.net

You don't say which version of IDE you are using?

Something like this, maybe:

274  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: 1.0.3 hangs from sending code with Serial.println("!!!"); to Mega 2560 on: February 04, 2013, 09:19:24 am
Yes, it is a known bug and a fixed bootloader should be included with release 1.04:

See this post for DFU mode:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,141407.msg1062815.html#msg1062815

The short answer is that if your 16U2 came un-programmed, there is a good chance the main processor is un-programmed as well.
So even if you are able to reprogram the 16U2, you still need to figure out a way to program the 328.

I would send it back and see if you can get a replacement.

Steps to install the Arduino drivers in Windows:

Right click the Unknown Device in Device Manager
Select Update Driver Software
Select Browse my computer for software
Click Browse button
Select the Drivers folder under the location of your Arduino software installation. (Do not select the FTDI folder inside the Drivers folder)
Click OK
Click Next

Follow these steps to temporarily disable Driver Signature Enforcement:

Take note of the Secure Boot step if this is a new system with Win8 installed.
280  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Problem of Installing ARDUINO UNO dirvers with Win8 64bit on: January 15, 2013, 08:36:06 am
Take a look at this thread:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,140068.msg1057451.html#msg1057451

Maybe your ASUS is having a similar problem to Acer.

It's possible it's related to Secure Boot. There may be a setting in the BIOS setup screens to disable Secure Boot.
I would try disabling Secure Boot, if it is enabled, then try the steps you did before to disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

On mine I have pages of topics listed. And I don't use Notify very often. The vast majority are topics that I have replied to.

Seems like something with your profile settings on the server is messed up.
282  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows 7 and driver signing on: January 12, 2013, 12:39:47 pm
Is there something unique about this Windows 7 install that you haven't mentioned?
Is this a "corporate" image or something like that, with a group policy set to restrict unsigned drivers?

A standard install of Win7 x64 does not have this issue, other than the warning during the first install.
I use it on Win7 x64 all the time without the problem you describe.

The problem you describe, seems to indicate there is a policy setting that is enforcing this behavior.

Go to your Profile -> Notifications and Emails and then unsubscribe from the thread you no longer want.

Since the Device Manager is showing "atmega16u2", your Arduino is in DFU mode.
This indicates the atmega16u2 does not have the Serial to USB code loaded on it.

If you want to try to recover it yourself you can use the following page as a guide.
http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/DFUProgramming8U2

The instructions are the same for the 16u2.
Since you are on Windows, you can download and install FLIP. (The link is on the page above)

Download the following firmware and install this on the 16u2 with FLIP:
https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/master/hardware/arduino/firmwares/atmegaxxu2/arduino-usbserial/Arduino-usbserial-atmega16u2-Uno-Rev3.hex

After that, you should be able to install the UNO USB serial drivers.

Hopefully, the bootloader is installed on the atmega328.
