View the README for hints on using this Wiki and getting support for your robot.

Getting Started

The RAVEN User Guide is a (work-in-progress) guide for everything from setting up your RAVEN to troubleshooting common errors. This is part of a larger effort from the UW BRL and Applied Dexterity to provide useful guides and information to getting the most out of your RAVEN. Further support materials covering more advanced topics are also being created and curated. A series of videos are being created to cover the hands-on topics of robot use. If you have any questions or have specific topics that you would like covered, please post in the forum.

The following wiki pages contain earlier versions of this information:

See the Getting Started page for more information about setting up your RAVEN-II robot.

See Updating RAVEN code for updating to the latest code.

See NewComputerSetup for making your own RAVEN-compatible RT computer for running the robot or simulation.
