|Skitter - ERS-7 Skit
Contents of this website are freeware and/or copyrighted material, and may not be sold

The ERS-7 is now supported fully by Skitter. A good thing.
However, there are two important points to keep in mind:
- Start & stop posture should be the same.
- Skits which "situp" with the front legs off the
ground, must start in the "situp" posture.
The 210/220/310 do not have these restrictions. The ERS-7 does.
Detail on #1
|RCode automatically moves AIBO in the
correct posture for a
skit. For example, if standing AIBO automatically
sits down for a sit posture skit.
However, the ERS-7 appears to pick auto-transitions skits
randomly. If you create a skit which starts standing
and finishes sitting, AIBO might think "aha, this'll work" and
perform your skit inappropriately.
Skitter & OdaBuild include a number of custom auto-translation
skits when initializing memory sticks that helps, but the problem
Detail on #2
|If you make an ERS-7 "situp" manually --
for example starting from the
sit or sleep posture -- you'll trigger the self-righting routines.
There is the "NoFallDown" variable -- but it doesn't work
properly. AIBO remembers falling over, and tucks that
detail away for later.
Your "situp" skit performs fine. The next skit which
changes posture however trips across the "fall-over"
memory. Sometimes AIBO tries to stand-up.
Sometimes gracefully. Sometimes in a panic.
The work-around is starting & stopping using the "situp" posture.
Do not start in the sit posture & then situp. Do not
use the NoFallDown variable.
