Hello RVR Users!
New RVR firmware has been released! This firmware makes driving more consistent and controllable, tracks target heading three times more accurately, improves locator accuracy, and produces cleaner stopping behavior. Connect to your RVR with the Sphero Edu app on iOS or Android to automatically update to the newest firmware. Make sure your app is up to date (v6.0.0+ on iOS, v6.0.1 on Android) first.
In addition to improving existing functionality, this update adds numerous new features, most revolving around driving. Check out the release notes for a complete feature list. We also just released a major update to the python SDK for Raspberry Pi to advantage of all the new firmware features! Get the details on the SDK at sdk.sphero.com, and be sure to check out the RVR Control System Manual to learn about all the new driving modes!
We’re all excited to have this out in the world, and look forward to seeing your creations! Happy hacking!
