IR communication between BOLT and external IR emitter

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there is a way to program a IR emitter (for example Arduino based) in order to communicate with the BOLT. In theory it should be possible but I didn’t find any info about the kind of transmission protocol that the BOLT can receive (NEC?).

Any idea?
Thanks :slight_smile:

Hello @G4BR13L,

In theory there is! It’s a bit tricky, but you may be able to reverse engineer the Sphero IR protocol by using a IR sensor, and looking at the signals exchanged on a scope. Then, you should be able to replicate the timing to send the messages you are looking for!

I hope this helps,
