|Img.1.: let's begin and rock (part of my toys)|
1. download leJOS_EV3_0.8.1-beta.tar.gz (last available)
2. download Java for Lego Mindstorm EV3 = ejdk-8-fcs-b132-linux-arm-sflt-03_mar_2014.tar.gz
3. 6 x AA Batteries 1.5V - rechargeable -> almost green energy
Let's prepare LeJOS SD card for the mission:
1. from the manual: card must be bigger than 2GB and FAT32
2. unpack leJOS file -> go to the folder -> copy the lejosimage.zip file to the SD Card
3. unpack lejosimage.zip
4. copy downloaded Java SE file to the CD-Card (SD Card root)
5. put SD-CARD to the Lego Brick and finally startup
To work with LeJOS comfortably is required to have WiFi connection via dongle (Img.2.).
Then is possible to deploy directly for the IDE (IntelliJ IDEA 13.x in my case) to Lego Brick.
|Img.2.:: supported NetGear N150 USB Wireless Adapter|
1. Boot Brick and select Control -> Wifi -> select network with WPA2
|Img.3.:set the wifi password|
|Img.4.: favorite IDE IntelliJ IDEA 13.x with Maven Lego Project inside and upload command|
So now we have Lego Mindstorm EV3 ready for read development and sensors usage...
