Some things that you may have troubles with.

Communication with Devices

Serial Connection

Connection to devices is done primarily using serial ports in Artoo.


  • To get the serial port identifier for your device, open a terminal and type the following command:

    $ ls /dev/tty.*
  • You should change the code to connect to that port, for example:

    connection :sphero, :adaptor => :sphero, :port => '/dev/tty.Sphero-ORB-RN-SPP'
