I am working with a Robotis Engineer Kit 2 assembled as MAX E2. I want to control it from matlab since I programmed the inverse kinematics and many other interest functions on it. I followed the examples of the Python Workbook and I can code the robot in python from R+ Task 3.0 but I don’t know how can I establish communication with the PC and the robot.
The support mail recommended to use the U2D2 and the Dynamixel SDK that works with matlab and I am considering it, however I don’t want to lose communication with the CM-550 as it has the IMU registers onto it.
Alternatively I would like to know if I can program the rapsberry Pi Zero W directly to stablish connection with matlab and control the robot this way.
If anyone can give me some advice on how to proceed and or any tutorial or repository to review I would be very grateful. Thanks for reading up to this point and have a nice day.
