*** new firmware annoucement ***

Marco Randazzo

Dear iCubers,

This email is to inform you that we just released a new firmware build (#80) for the iCub robot.

The new firmware implements new features (such as friction compensation for torque control) and explicitly supports the new controlMode/InteractionMode interfaces introduced in yarp 2.3.63 (VERY IMPORTANT: read the documentation page: http://wiki.icub.org/wiki/Control_Modes )

It is quite a big change respect to previous build (#77), and for this reason it was not possible to maintain backward compatibility with the previous firmware version.

This means that, if you update just the icub-main repository to the latest version, the core executable iCubInterface / robotInterface will automatically close, displaying the following message: 

 

###################################################################################

###################################################################################

It has been detected that your control boards are not using the same

CAN protocol used by iCubinterface. iCubInterface cannot continue

Please update your system (iCubInterface and/or your control board firmware.

For further information please visit: http://wiki.icub.org/wiki/Firmware

###################################################################################

You are thus encouraged to update the firmware of your robot, using the canLoader utility (http://wiki.icub.org/wiki/Firmware) , as soon as possible.

If you have doubts about how to perform the firmware upgrade, or you need support during the operation, please contact  [hidden email]

Cheers,
